The name of the new album relates to an oak tree in Wiltshire's Savernake Forest, thought to be around 1,000 years old. The forest lies around three miles away from Tottenham House, a listed country house where Radiohead recorded part of 'In Rainbows'.
The tree is a pollarded oak, referring to an ancient technique for harvesting timber for fencing and firewood. The phrase also appears in the 23rd chapter of the Qu'ran.

Just so we are all on the same page I want to make it clear that I am a bigger Radiohead fan than all of you.
This is the most wonderful valentine's day present ever.
pre-ordered my Wavvy Newspaper....excite!
I love waking up to the smell of new Radiohead hot off the stove.

Not sure if I just got lucky, or what, but I pre-ordered with a credit card, and got NO confirmation screen, just back to the main page. I tried again with PayPal, and it worked just fine. Confirmation screen is go! Just a heads up, if anyone else isn't having any luck with getting a confirmation.
