Radiohead, has proven once again why they are one of the most innovative mainstream bands in the world. The band, who have been without a record deal since their contract with EMI ended with their last album Hail to the Thief in 2003, announced that their new album, In Rainbows, will be released on October 10th, and will be available exclusively from their website for the first two months. The download will be DRM-free, and most importantly, there is no set price. "It's up to you," says the website. You can pay whatever you want. Or you can even choose not to pay anything. The album is also available to order in a "discbox" which contains the album with a bonus disc with 8 additional songs, 2 vinyl records, plus artwork and booklets which goes for £40
I pre-ordered my digital copy yesterday. I chose to pay £7.
