Three weeks ago, King of Limbs wasn’t even a dot on the radar. All at once, from nowhere, we have a rumour, a title, a release date. Elderly music fans begin to wax nostalgic, excited by the rare sensation of being made to wait for a record and experiencing it for the first time in conjunction with their peers. Fans and critics are on tenterhooks, eager to be the first to digest the album and make for the message boards to proffer an opinion. In short, a nicely orchestrated 21st century buzz is created.
