As previously reported by AOL Music, Radiohead only announced the imminent arrival of 'The King of Limbs' four days before its actual release, but now eagle-eyed fans of the Oxford five-piece are speculating that 'The King of Limbs' could be part one of two.
According to the NME, the conspiracy theorists have pointed to the fact that the final track on 'The King of Limbs' is entitled 'Separator' and if taken literally could mean the song is bridging the gap between releases.
Radiohead have some experience with this approach. In 2000 the band released 'Kid A,' and followed that up less than a year later with the surprise release of it's follow-up 'Amnesiac,' which was almost entirely recorded during the same sessions.
The other main catalyst for the rumours comes courtesy of fans who noticed 'The Kings of Limbs' was titled 'TKOL1' when they placed their orders, the theory being that 'TKOL2' must be around the corner.
At this time the theories are pure conjecture but that hasn't stopped various hoaxers from jumping on the band-wagon, claiming to have gotten hold of a second installment.
With no substantial evidence and no word from the band, for the time being fans will have to make do with 'The King of Limbs' ... part one?
