Kicking off a set of free archival releases, Radiohead will look back on their “In Rainbows” era, with a free April 9th broadcast of their Jan. 16, 2008 show celebrating the beloved LP.

According to the band, the set “was originally intended to be an in-store performance at London record store Rough Trade East to mark the conventional release of the In Rainbows album—a plan that went awry when hordes of fans and overwhelming media coverage caught the attention of the local authorities. The entire production had to be torn down and a replacement venue found on a moment’s notice. The show ultimately happened at 93ft East, a club with a capacity of a few hundred that was thankfully available for the night. The result was an electric and intimate Radiohead performance like no other, one largely unseen since—until now.”

The show includes all of “In Rainbows” as well as a few other Radiohead favourites, such as “Up on the Latter,” “You and Whose Army?,” “The National Anthem,” “My Iron Lung,” and “The Bends.”

The show will be available on Radiohead’s YouTube channel starting Friday, April 9 at 3 p.m. ET.
