Yorke Surprises Fans With New Release Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke surprised music fans last week with the immediate release of his second solo album, titled Tomorrow's Modern Boxes. The album was released digitally via BitTorrent, which Yorke says was done as an experiment in new ways to distribute and sell music online. This is reportedly the first-ever release via BitTorrent which requires payment to access the file.
The eight-song album is also being released in a deluxe vinyl bundle, which includes the album in MP3, FLAC and WAV formats. The BitTorrent bundle includes the entire album with a video. Yorke has launched www.tomorrowsmodernboxes.comas well, where the album can be ordered.
Yorke and producer Nigel Godrich wrote on Radiohead's "Dead Air Space" blog, "It's an experiment to see if the mechanics of the system are something that the general public can get its head around ... If it works well it could be an effective way of handing some control of internet commerce back to people who are creating the work. Enabling those people who make either music, video or any other kind of digital content to sell it themselves. Bypassing the self elected gate-keepers. If it works anyone can do this exactly as we have done. The torrent mechanism does not require any server uploading or hosting costs or 'cloud' malarkey."
