The second track from the band’s hugely popular new album, In Rainbows, is currently available for sale – with five parts (voice, guitar, bass, drums and strings) available as separate tracks, giving fans the opportunity to turn their hand to creating their own Radiohead masterpiece. Fans can then upload their creation to the site radioheadremix.com
where their track will be voted on, with the most popular walking away with a prize (winner announced May 1).
Remix competitions are nothing new, however Radiohead’s plan to charge users to download the various parts of the song via iTunes is definitely a new business model once again proving the savvy business nous of band frontman Thom Yorke… The band recently made news after they parted with their label Parlophone and then released their latest album as a ‘pay what you want’ download… The album went on to deliver the highest record sales of the last quarter.
