WATCH: Radiohead Drops New ‘Burn the Witch’ Stop-Motion Music Video

Band releases first new single in five years complete with rhythmic orchestral grooves and eerily mouthless model villagers.

Conceived, written and animated in 14 days by director Chris Hopewell and his Jackknife studio, whose “crazy girl gang” shown below produced all the puppets and props in 6 days, Burn the Witch may be the first track of Radiohead’s upcoming ninth studio album, which was mysteriously announced to fans this past weekend in a leaflet sent via mail. Check out the video and Instagram posts from Jackknife and noted artist and Radiohead collaborator Stanley Donwood!
