Fans can now stream previously unavailable rarities for the first time and custom order out-of-print merchandise designs.
Radiohead have launched their own 'public library,' which will serve as an archive for the bands vast back catalogue.
Visitors can create their own downloadable library card and membership number. The library, hosted on their website, features archival material grouped around each of the band's studio albums, including artwork and live television performances.
The new library also gives fans access to previously unavailable music, like their 1992 debut EP, Drill, and 'I Want None of This' from the 2005 charity compilation Help!: A Day in the Life. Fans can also now access out-of-print merchandise to be custom-made on demand through the library.
Band members will celebrate the opening week by taking turns serving as librarian for a day, curating a selection of materials on their social media channels.
