Radiohead has set a Dec. 31 international release date for the physical version of its new album, "In Rainbows."4 Things:
The album will be released on CD and vinyl, followed by the single, "Jigsaw Falling Into Place" on Jan. 14. Formats for the single will be announced shortly.
Both album and single will be released outside the United States on XL Recordings. A spokesperson for the band said that details for the U.S. physical release are not yet finalized, although ATO/Side One Recordings is by far the front-runner to sign Radiohead there. [Billboard]
- No Radiohead for the Holidays, unless your holiday is New Years Eve
- I think the whole thing about most people not paying for the Radiohead album is probably true, but seems a little to silly to obsess about because the data is based on some poll. I'm pretty sure I read that Radiohead hasn't released the actual numbers.
- Those numbers don't take into account all the people that will pay for the CD when it comes out - even if they downloaded it. (or do they? - I didn't read it all actually)
- Should you have to pay for the CD if you are one of the ones who paid more than $10 for the download? Shouldn't you get a discount on the CD at least? How many people will pay for it twice?
