The update includes new atmospheric music and trippy visual landscapes.

Radiohead fans have to wait a little while longer for a new studio album, but in the meantime the band has updated its PolyFauna app with new atmospheric music and visual landscapes.

Radiohead Unveils PolyFauna Interactive App

Unveiled in February, PolyFauna was inspired by recording sessions from Radiohead’s 2011 album, The King of Limbs -- particularly the set’s lead track "Bloom,” according to frontman Thom Yorke.

Hints of the app’s Sept. 1 update came over the weekend when Yorke began tweeting out a series of drawings and otherworldly images. The sketches were conceived by Yorke, producer Nigel Godrich, Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood and digital arts studio Universal Imagery, according to Rolling Stone.

Check out some clips from the app below.

Here’s how the app works: users can move their devices in order to gain different views of the app's abstract landscapes, and touch the screen to draw on top of the presentation, which comes backed by some appropriately-eerie music.

Radiohead to Begin Recording Ninth Album in September

PolyFauna’s update arrives as Radiohead prepares to enter the studio to rehearse and record its ninth studio album.

"We're going to start up in September, playing, rehearsing and recording and see how it's sounding,” the band’s band’s guitarist Jonny Greenwood said during Mary Anne Hobbes' BBC 6Music show on July 12.

Radiohead’s last album, The King of Limbs, debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200.
