Radiohead fans rejoice! To support the release of its new album A Moon Shaped Pool, the band has announced the details of a streaming event taking place at record stores across the world this Friday, June 17. Not only will there be an exclusive day-long audio stream from the band, but also a series of competitions and artworks by collaborator Stanley Donwood for fans to take home.

The band has "assembled pre-recorded piped music to be played through the walls" and also shared that there will be "a very special two-hour live set of performances from their latest tour, featuring songs from the new album and favorites from the Radiohead catalogue." Those who attend the event will be able to enter a free prize draw, the first prize being a selection of figurines which were used in the making of Radiohead's "Burn The Witch" music video.

A full list of participating stores is available on Radiohead's A Moon Shaped Pool website.
