Radiohead as previously blogged only recently allowed their albums to be purchased online as downloads. But now they’re free of a recording contract with EMI the next album (to be called In Rainbows) will be available almost on a donation basis. You pay what you think the album is worth and they add a delivery(read download) cost on. More about this – Digital Music News and at InRainbows.com.
TheIn Rainbows website allows the pre-ordering of the album in both physical and digital formats.
With this innovation comes a price, the UK official charts company doubts whether the album will qualify for the album charts because of the way Radiohead have priced the album.
