Radiohead Launch Series Of Unusual Christmas Greeting Cards


English rock band, Radiohead have launched a series of customizable, digital greeting cards through their online public library, in which fans can send a personalized card to friends and family.

However, these digital notes are more unsettling than the usual, generic festive greetings. The outside design options are “FA LA LA,” “LA-LA,” LA, LA,” LA” and “LAA,” and the inside choices include “EVERYTHING IS ROSY,” “PEACE ON YOU,” “IN LIEU OF EMPTINESS,” “HOPE FOR THE FUTURE” and “SUNLIT UPLANDS STILL AWAIT.”

“This festive card is for you to make and send to acquaintances new and old. No element of data placed into it will be stored by Radiohead,” Radiohead said when detailing the project on their site. “Although if you are interested in hearing from Radiohead, quietly walk over here and join W.A.S.T.E. Please don’t run. This is still a library.”

Radiohead’s lead guitarist, Jonny Greenwood joined in on the action and wrote his own heart-felt holiday greeting to fans, reminding them they should not be afraid of these unprecedented times.

“I hope you are all safe and well and not too scared, or too bored,” he wrote. “I also hope that somehow we can be part of making music for you soon, and that the pleasure of making music, and hearing music, whether in a gig, concert hall, church, or at home with friends — is not forgotten in this desolate year. And as we climb out of 2020, washing our hands, I wish you all a happier new year — and send you and yours all our fondest regards.”

Radiohead issued their most recent studio album, A Moon Shaped Pool, in 2016. Singer Thom Yorke released his latest solo project, the album and Netflix short film Anima, in 2019. Yorke also married his girlfriend Dajana Roncione in Sicily, September this year.
