The digital greetings card can be generated and sent via Radiohead’s Public Library archives site.

Radiohead have launched a new series of digital greeting cards for the festive season. The new feature is built into the band’s Public Library archive website and includes an assortment of text options for both the cover and message.

The text choices for the cover include “FA LA LA”, “LA-LA”, “LA, LA”, “LA” and “LAA”, while the options for the message inside offer Radiohead-themed phrases like “Everything is rosy”, “In lieu of emptiness”, “Peace on you”, “Hope for the future”, and “Sunlit uplands still await”.

According to the online archive, no data placed onto the cards will be stored by Radiohead.

As reported by Pitchfork, in a message to fans Jonny Greenwood wrote, “Right now, I just feel this: I hope you are all safe and well and not too scared, or too bored. I also hope that somehow we can be part of making music for you soon, and that the pleasure of making music, and hearing music, whether in a gig, concert hall, church, or at home with friends – is not forgotten in this desolate year.”

Head over to Radiohead’s Public Library to find out more about the digital festival cards and to create your own. Read up on the nine essential artefacts of the archives here.
