Paul Thomas Anderson Directed Radiohead’s New Video—and It's Playing in Theaters
By Rudie Obias
Radiohead just released A Moon Shaped Pool, the band’s ninth studio album—and their first in five years, since 2011’s The King of Limbs. To create the stylish music video for “Daydreaming,” one of the first singles off the new album, the British rockers enlisted the help of six-time Oscar-nominated director Paul Thomas Anderson.
While you can watch the video on Radiohead’s YouTube page, a 35mm film version of the seven-minute music video has also been sent to a few select theaters across the country to play as pre-show entertainment. The canisters arrived with a note that read: “We’ve made a film, Here it is, We’d be happy if you played it!”
Radiohead’s “Daydreaming” is playing in front of movies at Chicago’s Music Box Theatre, The Egyptian in Hollywood, The Aero in Santa Monica, Quentin Tarantino’s New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles, Austin’s Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, and New York City’s Metrograph. Which gives you one good reason to grab your seat before the onslaught of trailers begins.
A Moon Shaped Pool is now available for download on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Tidal and will hit stores on June 17.
