Radiohead are getting into the holiday spirit with a new line of digital holiday cards. “This festive card is for you to make and send to acquaintances new and old,” reads a note on the band’s website, with outside design choices that include “Fa La La,” “La” and “Laa” (make of that what you will), and inside designs including “Everything is rosy,” “Hope for the future,” and “In lieu of emptiness.” Send them to your friends and loved ones here.
Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood also sent out a holiday note that discusses the difficulties of a pandemic year and sending hope and wishing for better things to come, with a nod to science fiction: “There’s that Ray Bradbury story about the perfect murder, where everyone is so used to seeing holograms of each other that it’s easy for real people to just pretend to be a projection. Physical people have become the exception in this future world. I forget the title now (though Colin would remember. I’ll Zoom him later). How’s that, Jools? Murder and solitude – and….happy zmas.”
