So…the new album will be out next week – at least online anyway, as it’s available for digital download…or, for the more completest Radiohead fan, you can buy the Discbox, which includes the actual album, entitled ‘In Rainbows’, along with a second disc of songs that didn’t make the final cut, a vinyl version of the album, plus a wide range of photos, etc…all for the price of £40…to be received on December 3rd! Of course, if you buy the discbox set, you also get the album to be downloaded for free next week…a very nice gesture of the band…
…alternatively, you can pay absolutely nothing, as Radiohead have introduced a ‘pay as much as you want’ plan for the download, so you can pay nothing…or everything…your choice!!!
Personally, i decided that the discbox looked the best buy…so i went ahead and bought it! The tracklisting of the album looks good (a number of videos are floating around Youtube – so you can ‘try before you buy’!), and, as it’s Radiohead, i think it’s almost guaranteed that the album will be great…i mean, i don’t think Radiohead have actually made a bad album!!! Although i’m not impressed with the album title…it doesn’t really fit for me…but i’m not going to let that affect my judgement on the album – i will review it when i receive it!!!
Anyway, this news was greeted by me with many smiles and much happiness…so that’s the most important thing!!!
As a side note: The Autumns new album ‘Fake Noise From A Box Of Toys’ is out next Monday in the UK – i hope to do a review around Wednesday/Thursday so keep your eyes peeled!!!
