A few months ago Thom Yorke released his new solo album via a $6 BitTorrent Bundle. The album was downloaded over 4.4 million times and was the most-downloaded music BitTorrent Bundle of the year.
Both Thom Yorke and Radiohead are known for their experimental release methods. Now Yorke has chosen Bandcamp as his next release platform.
Yorke has released both a new song and the album, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, on his Bandcamp page. The song, “Youwouldn’tlikemewhenI’mangry” is available at ‘name-your-price’. Fans can get the track for any amount they choose, including $0.
The album is available both digitally and on vinyl. Fans can pay $6 or more for the digital version, or a fixed price of $46.64 for the vinyl version. The vinyl version includes a digital download.
All purchases allow fans to stream the music on the Bandcamp app, but the music can also be streamed on the web for free.
