This song was released as a free download by Radiohead from their official website, just days after it was leaked on the Internet. The band posted a statement on their site saying that they have been working on the song for some time and would be performing it at their summer festival concerts.
The download came with various artwork pictures by vocalist Thom Yorke and Radiohead associate, the writer and artist Stanley Donwood. It came with instructions that the artwork should be printed on tracing paper and put "in an order that pleases you."
Ronnie Dunn wrote "Boot Scootin' Boogie" before he teamed up with Kix Brooks to form Brooks & Dunn. It was originally recorded by the country group Asleep At The Wheel, but Brooks & Dunn did it themselves when it got its own line dance.
