(From CNN) Radiohead’s “disappearance” from the Internet has proved short-lived, with the band pleasing fans by releasing a new song in a video on YouTube.
The acclaimed five-piece from Oxford, England, caused a stir in recent days by quietly erasing its Internet presence, fueling speculation that the release of the group’s ninth studio album was imminent.
The stop-motion video from director Chris Hopewell is for a song called “Burn The Witch.”
The video and two clips posted earlier Tuesday will lend further credence to rumors among the group’s devoted fans that the new album also is called “Burn The Witch” — and will be released shortly.
The band deleted all content from its social media accounts and website Sunday, then began posting again Tuesday, releasing two short video clips on Instagram.
Radiohead released its last studio album, “King of Limbs,” five years ago.
