'Burn the Witch' and 'Daydreaming' Tracks Take Viewers to Strange Places

We've seen a lot of action from Radiohead just before the release of its new album on Sunday. On Tuesday, it debuted its video for "Burn the Witch," the band's first new single since 2011. Directed by Chris Hopewell out of Jacknife, the sinister tale cloaked in storybook-style stop motion animation follows the happy villagers of a rural English town who also happen to have some punishing tendencies straight out of Salem.

Today, Radiohead debuted another thought-provoking film for its track "Daydreaming."

Paul Thomas Anderson ("Boogie Nights," "Magnolia," "Punch Drunk Love") was behind the camera for this one, produced out of Ghoulardi Film Company and m ss ng p eces. The eerie, surreal tale follows lead singer Thom Yorke in and out of endless doorways as he enters homes, a hospital, a school building, a laundromat and goes out into the dichotomous landscapes of a beach and snow-covered slopes.

The music videos follow an unusual marketing push that saw the band scrubbing its digital presence clean and sending mysterious leaflets to fans.
