Fans of Radiohead are rejoicing at the sounds of their latest single "Burn The Witch." The claymation music video that was released alongside the track has now reached over 4.2 million views on YouTube in less than 24 hours.

The music video for "Burn The Witch" was directed by Chris Hopewell, produced by Rosie Lea Brind, edited by Ben Foley with Jon Davey as DOP. While recent reports would suggest the band is fading from the internet, the success of "Burn The Witch" could be pointing to a different approach from the band. More recent reports point towards a political message behind the video.

"Arriving at the current chaotic moment in global politics, though, and set in the quaint visual context of 'Trumpton,' the 'Burn the Witch' video plays as a pointed critique of nativism-embracing leaders across the UK and Europe, perhaps even the show's near-namesake stateside (Donald Trump, anyone?)," reported Pitchfork.

The Thom Yorke fronted band has had years of success with a pretty hefty discography.

Whatever the motive may be for this new single and semi-controversial claymation music video, one thing is for sure, the band is still managing to make exquisite music that keeps fans on the edge of their seat.
