"The Daily Mail" / "Staircase" is a 2011 single by the English alternative rock band Radiohead. It was released as a digital download on 19 December 2011 in WAV and MP3 formats. Both tracks are taken from the live video The King of Limbs – From the Basement. In an interview on BBC Radio 1, Radiohead guitarist Ed O'Brien explained that "The Daily Mail" had been "kicking around for at least six years"; when the band decided to perform the song for From the Basement, a final arrangement "came together within a week", featuring a brass section arranged by band member Jonny Greenwood. In an interview for BBC 6Music, O'Brien explained that "Staircase" was worked on before the recording of The King of Limbs, but did not progress beyond the demo stages until after the album's release.
