Mon, 29 Sep 2014 12:12:27
BitTorrent teamed up with Radiohead/Atoms for Peace singer Thom Yorke to release his new solo album Tomorrow's Modern Boxes late last week. It is the first-ever paygated torrent in history and Yorke's first solo effort in eight years.
"If it works well, it could be an effective way of handing some control of Internet commerce back to the people who are creating the work...enabling those people who make either music, video or any other kind of digital content to sell it themselves," the singer said.
Tomorrow's Modern Boxes Track Listing:
01 - A Brain In a Bottle
02 - Guess Again!
03 - Interference
04 - The Mother Lode
05 - Truth Ray
06 - There Is No Ice (For My Drink)
07 - Pink Section
08 - Nose Grows Some
Fans can download the bundle here only $6 or purchase the vinyl at the W.A.S.T.E. store.
The partnership also marks the launch of the BitTorrent Bundle with paygates, which allows artists to monetize their Bundle content directly. Fans can download the album and pay using a credit card or PayPal in 140 currencies. The publisher covers the transaction fees and BitTorrent takes 10 percent after that, if you must know.
