[No Surprises announcement]
RADIOHEAD have confirmed full details of their next single, "No Surprises", released by Parlophone on January 12. The 12-inch is backed with "Palo Alto", which also appears on the cassette and one of the CD formats along with "How I Made My Millions". The second CD features two live tracks taken from this year's European tours: "Airbag", recorded in Berlin, and "Lucky", recorded in Florence.
Because it's being released in four formats, "No Surprises" may end up occupying two different positions in the singles chart. Chart compilers CIN will only allow sales of three formats to be combined for chart purposes, and so the 12-inch will be counted as a separate release. Radiohead's spokeswoman explained: "They're not really bothered about that. The launch is just there for the fans."
