This isn’t Christian, but it is music news. Radiohead will be releasing their newest album In Rainbows totally free. Click here to download it beginning tomorrow. Pay whatever you want.
I can’t help but think this is the smartest thing for a band to do. Radiohead is gonna gain a ton more fans, and old fans will just love them that much more.
And it could signal the end of the record label. Who knows how exactly things will change, but I’ll be glad to see big label record companies be done with. I don’t have a personal vendetta against them, but I just think their end has come. They’re artificially holding onto market share they don’t deserve by heaving their weight in legal battles. This is a free market economy, where you adapt or you die. The Big Four have not adapted.
Alright, before I get too lost in apocalyptic rants about the end of the world and the deplorable state of mankind through the music industry, read an interesting analysis of the whole Radiohead situation here.
