That’s exactly what I did and now I will be able to download Radiohead’s new album on October 10th. My choice was to pay 4 UK pounds – approximately 8 US dollars.
Radiohead have told fans they can pay whatever they want for it. Nice.
I guess Radiohead is “getting it.” EMI’s new owner told the music industry it will not survive if it continues to rely on CD sales alone.
“The recorded music industry… has for too long been dependent on how many CDs can be sold,” he wrote. “Rather than embracing digitalisation and the opportunities it brings for promotion of product and distribution through multiple channels, the industry has stuck its head in the sand.”
Many record label bosses believe it is the duty of successful bands to stick with the companies that nurtured them so that their earnings can subsidise new talent. However, bands complain that too much of their money is used to subsidise lavish lifestyles for label bosses.
I LOVE Radiohead!
