Radioheads „In Rainbow“-Aktion war ein One Hit-Wonder plus neues Video

In Zukunft keine „In Rainbows“-Paywhatyouwant-Aktionen mehr von Radiohead. Mir genügt das einmalige Statement zur Situation der Musik-Industrie zwar irgendwie, find's aber trotzdem schade.

They turned the music sales model on its head, but indie rockers Radiohead won't be repeating their decision to let fans choose what to pay for their downloads, frontman Thom Yorke told The Hollywood Reporter.

"I think it was a one-off response to a particular situation," Yorke said of the band's downloading policy for the album "In Rainbows."

"It was one of those things where we were in the position of everyone asking us what we were going to do," he said. "I don't think it would have the same significance now anyway, if we chose to give something away again. It was a moment in time." (Hollywood Reporter)

Noch dazu haben sie in Kooperation mit MTV Exit, ein Video zum Thema Kinderarbeit für den Track „You're all I need“ gedreht, das ja eigentlich erst morgen auf MTV Premiere haben sollte. Das Internetz war allerdings schneller. Mal wieder.
