New Radiohead Album Out on Oct. 10
This is insane.
After a bunch of release date questions (will it be in 2007? 2008? 2012?), Radiohead have suddenly decided to release their new album on October 10. No record label. No promotion. In fact, it is only available as a Discbox set (vinyl, CD, and download code) and as a digital download.
It is titled In Rainbows.
The best part?
The download is of the "pick your price" variety.
No...seriously. You pick how much you want to pay for it, and then you pay it.
It sounds too good to be true...but it's not.
You can find this information at their website and their blog, as well as places like Green Plastic, At Ease Web, Stereogum, and, I'm sure, many other sources.
I can't tell you how excited I am for this.
And I'm expected to go to sleep tonight...
