Ever since leaving EMI, Radiohead has been a fully standalone corporate entity, which is to say an independent business unit. For reasons known only to their managers and accountants, Radiohead has created brand new LLCs just before the release of their last few albums.
For example, in the months before the release of In Rainbows in October 2007, they incorporated Xurbia Xendless Ltd. that July. When it came time for King of Limbs, they set things up financially by creating Ticker Tape Ltd in December 2010, a few months of the album’s release in February.
Consequence of Sound has helpfully pointed out that back on October 7, 2015, Radiohead legally registered the creation of Dawn Chorus Ltd. If past history is an indication, we might see another surprise Radiohead release (has there been any other kind in the last decade?) just about any time.
Anyone one to pick a date?
