The new Radiohead is not the smack in the face "In Rainbows" or "Kid A" turned out to be. It's not a stadium-filler like "OK Computer", either. What is it then? I dunno. A soundtrack for a fast ballooning head? Static fom the empty space inside your heart? I'm just guessing here.
After the jump: Thom Yorke gets his Usher on in the video for 'Lotus Flower'.

There's an empty space inside my heart Where the wings take root So now i'll set you free I'll set you free There's an empty space inside my heart Where the wings take root So now i'll set you free I'll set you free
Slowly we unfold Ss lotus flowers 'Cuz all I want is the moon upon a stick Sust to see what if Sust to see what it is I can't kick the habit Just to feed your fast ballooning head Listen to your heart
We will sink and be quiet as mice While the cat is away and do what we want Do what we want
There's an empty space inside my heart Where the wings take root So now I set you free I set you free
Cause all I want is the moon upon a stick Just to see what if Just to see what it is Take the lotus flowers into my room Slowly we unfold As lotus flowers All I want is the moon upon a stick Dance around a pit The darkness is beneath I can't kick the habit Just to feed my fast ballooning head
And the obvious favourite:
Sleight of hand Jump off the end Into a clear lake No one around
Just dragonflies Fantasize No one gets hurt You’ve done nothing wrong
Slide your hand Jump off the end The water's clear and innocent The water's clear and innocent
