After tantalizing fans with cryptic, elaborate marketing stunts last week, Radiohead have released their much anticipated ninth album, A Moon Shaped Pool.

It’s available for purchase directly from the band and via iTunes. It’s also being streamed on Apple Music but not on Spotify (at least not in full—two tracks are available on the streaming service).

And until June 6, you can listen to the entire thing for free thanks to BBC Radio 6 Music. The station is streaming the album as part of a “listening party,” which fellow BBC station Radio 1 also did for the release of Beyonce’s latest album, Lemonade.

Fans outside the UK are in luck: they can listen too, but only on desktop. And they don’t even have to pay a license fee to the BBC for the privilege.
