Ever pushing the boundaries creatively through both their ever-expanding catalog of experimental pop and their new and innovative marketing strategies, the British rock phenomenon that is Radiohead has set to release a newspaper of all things. This coming Tuesday, March 29, they will not only present the public with their newest LP The King of Limbs to be purchased in record stores on vinyl, compact disc and also via digital download, but will also release this newest innovative art and/or marketing ploy, a newspaper entitled The Universal Sigh.

What's in it? Who the hell knows, but we're excited to check it out. Through a little digging on The Universal Sigh's website we discovered that you'll be able to pick up your very own copy locally at two Chicago locations:

Reckless Records
26 East Madison st. Chicago, IL 60602

1957 West Chicago Avenue Chicago, IL 60622-5580

The Harold Washington Library
400 S. State Street, 60605

We'll admit, we are totally curious what this whole newspaper/zine thing is all about, so we'll be in line early to get our own copy. Being that Radiohead is arguably the most popular rock act worldwide, we think copies will fly off these stores' shelves. So get in, and get in early to either location to get your own.
