    Radiohead 'innovates' again, releases latest single in separate tracks for fan remixes

    Radiohead wasn’t going to take upstart Trent Reznor’s sass much longer. The British band loved by everyone trying to look smart has made its third single off In Rainbows available as an instrument-by-instrument downloade—for remixing! Nobody wins anything for their troubles, except placement on the band’s site. The band calls these separate tracks “stems” and… Read More

  • NIN's Trent Reznor calls out Radiohead for its so-so In Rainbows release

    [photopress:ningetsit.jpg,full,center] As if you already didn’t know, Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails’ frontman, also “gets” it. “It” meaning that the music business, as we once knew it, died some time ago. Also, he thinks Radiohead’s In Rainbows was a stunt more than anything else. Reznor, in speaking with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, called out… Read More

  • U2 thinking of dropping Universal Music, searching for other ways to distribute music

    [photopress:u2u2u2u2.jpg,full,center] Remember the music industry? College kids killed it a few years ago and the top acts are now starting to notice. U2, covered brilliantly by New York area band 2U, is reportedly thinking about severing its relationship with Universal Music Group. Either 2004′s “How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb” (which wasn’t too bad at all) or last… Read More

  • Radiohead's In Rainbows is week's best selling album, music industry must be thrilled

    [photopress:inrainbowsno1_1.jpg,full,center] Despite being released three months ago as a digital download, Radiohead’s latest album, In Rainbows, was the best selling album last week. That must really upset the big record labels, who for God knows how long have been claiming that downloadable music would be the death of the album, of physical collections of music. Never mind that Radiohead… Read More

    Are digital albums the future?

    Not so fast says Thom Yorke. In an interview with BBC Radio 4 Yorke said releasing an album in only digital format would have been “mad.” The Radiohead front man explained: We didn’t want it to be a big announcement about ‘everything’s over except the internet, the internet’s the future’, ’cause that’s utter rubbish. And it’s really… Read More

    Will DRM-free music lead to DRM-free games?

    GigaOM asks: is this Radiohead experiment going to change how things work, or is it a symptom of things changing? It’s not a philosophical question: something’s going on, as it’s been incredibly successful and shown that it can be done. But the real question is: can this lesson be applied to video games? In Rainbows, coupled with iTunes dropping DRM-free music down to $.99, are… Read More

    DRM-free music could signal the end for paid 'celestial jukeboxes'

    Breaking news, guys. Like, b-r-e-a-k-i-n-g. You may have heard about that stunt Radiohead pulled last week, giving away their music for whatever you feel it’s worth. Well now the pundits are out and have declared DRM dead. Or something! But seriously, this Wired column opines that, now with DRM-free music everywhere it’s likely that music subscription services will be the victim. Read More
