Radiohead, iTunes and Garageband are giving fans the opportunity to remix the band's new single "Nude" at http://www.radioheadremix.com
To make remixing easy, the separate 'stems'* from the song will be available to purchase from iTunes. The 'stems' available are bass, voice, guitar, strings/fx and drums. Fans can mix them in any way they like, either by adding their own beats and instrumentation, or just remixing the original parts.
Fans who purchase all five 'stems' from iTunes during the first week they're available, will be sent an access code to a GarageBand file ready to open in GarageBand or Logic. However, you don't need GarageBand to do a remix, all the stems are available in iTunes Plus and compatible with several music software platforms.
Finished mixes can be uploaded to http://www.radioheadremix.com where the public will listen and vote for their favourite remix (voting ends May 1st). Fans can also create a widget allowing votes from their own website, Facebook or MySpace page to be counted as 'mix votes' back on radioheadremix.com.
Nude is out now in the UK on CD, 7" and download.
*'stems' are the component parts of the song.
