Radiohead’s new album “In Rainbows” is coming out next week and they’ve decided to let the people decide what they want to pay for it. If you want to you can pay nothing for it. I decided to pay two pounds, which should come out to around $4. All you do is go to inrainbows.com and fill out what you want to pay and on October 10th you will get an access code to download the album. It’ll be interesting if they post what the average user paid for the record. Crazy stuff, this ‘digital age’!
How much would/will you pay?

Wow, this is definitely the kind of thing to expect from Radiohead I guess, but I think they’ve sucessfully made me feel guilty about downloading music for free. I’m not even sure if I’ll take it for free! Like an old friend paying for an expensive meal. You’d like to help but they’re offering to pay for you. Weird. Just weird.
I got the email today, downloaded at over 200k. It rocks!
