Radiohead are a band that like to do things differently, and they’re continuing that tradition with the forthcoming release of their new ‘The King Of Limbs’ album.
Previously hitting the headlights for inviting fans to ‘pay what you want‘ for their hugely successful ‘In Rainbows’ album, their latest release will be available in four versions; an MP3 download for £6, WAV download for £9 and as a ‘Newspaper Album’ in MP3 and WAV flavours, prices at £30 and £33 respectively.
The pricier newspaper edition include two 10″ vinyl records (huzzah!) plus a ton of intriguing-sounding artwork.
