Radiohead Defies Convention Again With Latest Album Release
Dubbed by the band as "the world's first newspaper album," physical editions will include 625 pieces of tiny artwork, two vinyl records, a CD, and a number of larger pieces of art.
Radiohead will continue pushing the envelope with the release of its latest album, The King of Limbs. In 2007, the band turned heads with the success of its pay-for-what-you-want release of In Rainbows. Its newest album will similarly test consumers’ spending preferences, and offer insight into whether consumers value a tangible copy at a price, over less expensive digital formats.
Dubbed by the band as “the world’s first newspaper album”, physical editions will include 625 pieces of tiny artwork, two vinyl records, a CD, and a number of larger pieces of art. It is priced at 30euros ($40US) and will be ready to ship on May 9th. The digital edition is priced at the reasonable price of 6 euros ($8US) and set to be released on February 19th.
