When Radiohead surprised their fans with a brand new album titled, A Moon Shaped Pool, the music world was in a frenzy.

Next to Drake's Views and Beyonce's Lemonade, A Moon Shaped Pool is one of the biggest releases this year and is on track to be the band's 6th top 10 album on the Billboard 200 Chart.

"Radiohead is set for its sixth top 10 album on the Billboard 200 chart with its latest release, A Moon Shaped Pool," according to Billboard.

"The album, which arrived on May 8, could enter at No. 3 on the May 28-dated chart, with over 150,000 equivalent album units earned in the week ending May 12."

The band began releasing new music with "Burn the Witch," the first single that featured an accompanying claymation music video. The band later followed up the release of "Burn The Witch" with "Daydreaming."

After a five-year break from releasing a new album, Radiohead has jumped back onto the scene as if they have never left.

The spooky and melancholic arrangements that fans are use to are still as infectious as they have always been.
