Radiohead are back on the internet with two intriguing Instagram posts
No other band on the planet could carry this off.
Having erased their online presence over the weekend, Radiohead have peeked their heads out from under the covers as anticipation of a new album builds.
We have no idea when the new record is going to drop - we just know that the band's marketing campaign is like nothing that has ever gone before.
Very Radiohead, in other words.
They've announced themselves with these two animated posts - a dawn chorus and what sounds like it could be the intro to a new song.
Social media users, of course, have been poking a lot of affectionate fun at Radiohead over the last few days:
Radiohead's latest album to be released exclusively on the feeling of existential dread that resides within us all.

Thought I heard a new Radiohead song on the radio, then realised I'd just switched on the microwave by mistake.
