Radiohead Announces New Album Details
Mon, 01 Oct 2007 10:43:38
Over the weekend, with little fanfare, Radiohead announced that they will release their seventh album, In Rainbows, as soon as October 10. Yes, that's in ten days. The revolutionary band will make their newest album available digitally in less than two weeks, without the assistance of a label (the band is currently without a label at this time). Then in December, they will release a special edition box-set, complete with bonus material, exclusive photos, vinyl versions of the record, and lyrics. Both are available now for pre-order.
But that's not progressive enough for Radiohead. In another truly bizarre marketing maneuver, the band is selling the digital copy for whatever you want to pay. There is no fixed pricethe website allows for you to enter whatever price you see fit. The box-set, however, is a steep $82. If you can wait that long, a tradition CD release has also been planned for early 2008.
The album can be purchased by visiting www.inrainbows.com
This is the track listing:
ALL I NEED
HOUSE OF CARDS
JIGSAW FALLING INTO PLACE
And this is the bonus material:
DOWN IS THE NEW UP
UP ON THE LADDER
BANGERS AND MASH
4 MINUTE WARNING
