Making this my BEST DAY EVER in a long time, Radiohead’s new album “In Rainbows” is released by digital download on 10 October.
Now what makes this awesome is THIS -
1. You can pay WHATEVER you like for the digital album, or pay nothing at all. Up to you.
2. You can only buy it from inrainbows.com – they are totally against Itunes because they don’t believe albums should be sold as individual tracks.
3. They have no record company – they are totally bypassing the record industry.
4. It was announced on their fan blog, not through some snazzy deal with some industry mag.
5. You can also buy a special box set that includes the album, a bonus CD with 8 extra songs, both of these on vinyl, a book etc. Works out to AU 90.
6. Free shipping!
All in all, I’m very very happy. I’ve heard the live versions of these songs and it is going to be amazing :)
