British band Radiohead will introduce fans to their new, yet-to-be titled album during a headlining set at Primavera Sound festival in Barcelona.

The much-anticipated news was hidden away in a Primavera press release, which revealed details of the star-studded event, to take place in the northern Spanish city from June 1 to 4.

The release promises "the presentation of the new album by the British band Radiohead," as well as the presence of Aussie experimental group Tame Impala and Icelandic band Sigur Ros.

The British band, who released their eighth album The King of Limbs in 2011, have not performed live since 2012.


Despite their absence on the stage, the band teased fans on Christmas Day with an audio upload of new song Spectre.

"Last year we were asked to write a tune for the Bond movie Spectre," they said on their website.

"It didn't work out, but became something of our own, which we love very much."

The festival's line-up also includes renowned musician Brian Wilson, Beach House, Chairlift, the Black Lips and rock icon PJ Harvey.
