Hi, we’re Radiohead. You may have heard of us before, maybe not. Our contract with Capitol expired after we released Hail to the Thief in ’03. Yesterday we announced the release of our next album In Rainbows on October 10th. If you’d like to pay for it, thanks, but we’re going to leave it at your discretion. Honestly, we didn’t much feel like promoting this decaying business model. From when dinosaurs roamed the earth; we’ve since paid our dues.
Prince had the right idea when he gave away his album Planet Earth for free. Then he sold out 21 consecutive shows. That’s brilliant. We like to play music as much as you like to listen. And we are quite pleased with this release, so do enjoy.
See you at the show,
Colin, Jonny, Ed, Phil & Thom
