Radiohead whet fans’ appetites Sunday morning as the band’s official site gradually disappeared from view, the entire homepage fading into white.

Part of an apparent publicity stunt, the band’s official Facebook and Twitter pages also got wiped of all previous content, and Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke’s Twitter feed also went blank.

If ghosting fans weren’t enough, the band sent its UK followers a mysterious leaflet over the weekend that read, “Sing a song of sixpence that goes/ Burn the Witch/ We know where you live.”

The clue includes the name of an unreleased Radiohead song that dates back to the early 2000s,  as pointed out in a Pitchfork report.

Fan theories about the mailed leaflet’s significance are popping up on Reddit, leaving some to wonder if the new album is going to drop soon.
