In case you’ve been hiding under a rock since Thursday, British alt-rock juggernaut Radiohead is playing the Austin City Limits Festival this year. Organizers say tickets to the first weekend of the festival sold out “in record time,” but tickets to weekend two Oct. 7-9 are still available.

Last night Radiohead released their highly anticipated new album “A Moon Shaped Pool.” The album is available for purchase for $13, on the band’s website. It’s also available through iTunes.  The album is currently streaming on Apple Music and Tidal, but not on Spotify.

For the next 29 days you can listen to a stream of the album for free via a listening party hosted by BBC’s Radio 6. Unfortunately, this option is available via desktop only for those of us living in the U.S.

The New York Times calls the album “patient perfectionism” and Rolling Stone heralds it as “a haunting, stunning triumph.”

Also, this 8-year-old from London breaks it down track by track.
