Radiohead Will Gift Us With Career-Spanning Songbook

radiohead complete songbook

Radiohead super fans, listen up—the Oxfordshire, England natives are releasing a songbook that covers over 160 of their songs. And yes, that includes B-sides and deep cuts.

Appropriately titled Radiohead Complete, the songbook will contain 400 pages of lyrics and chords that span the band’s entire thirty-two year career. The book will also contain new artwork from Stanley Donwood, the man behind all of Radiohead’s posters and album art from the last twenty-three years (including the trippy-looking cover for In Rainbows).

The Radiohead Complete news comes only a few months after the band released two guitar songbooks that cover tunes from “Paranoid Android” to “Reckoner.” The band also released a songbook with the release of last year’s A Moon Shaped Pool and was recently nominated for a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame—in its first year of eligibility, might we add. Plus, Radiohead unintentionally made headlines when a couple of Fox News contributors accused the band of being “the poor man’s Coldplay” and compared Radiohead’s music to “elaborate moaning and whining over ringtone sounds.”

 The songbook is pretty pricey, coming in at a whopping 40 pounds (or about 68 Canadian dollars). But there’s no price too high for hard core music lovers, and the book could make the perfect holiday gift for that musician slash music historian in your life. The songbook drops on November 27, but you can pre-order it here.
