Radiohead preparing new release
Radiohead have written a "group of songs" and are presently deciding how to release them.
The UK band pioneered a system whereby fans could pay what they liked to download their last album, 'In Rainbows' in 2007, and bassist Colin Greenwood has hinted they may embark on a similarly adventurous project for the release of their new material.
Writing on website indexoncensorship.org, Colin said: "We have just finished another group of songs and have begun to wonder about how to release them in a digital landscape that has changed again.
"It seems to have become harder to own music in the traditional way, on a physical object like a CD, and instead music appears the poor cousin of software, streamed or locked into a portable device like a phone or iPod."
"Traditional marketplaces and media are feeling stale - supermarkets account for around 70 per cent of CDs sold in the UK, the charts are dominated by TV talent-show acts - and we are trying to find ways to put out our music that feel as good as the music itself. The ability to have a say in its release, through the new technologies, is the most empowering thing of all."
Despite the band keen to be at the cutting edge of technology; Colin did, however, say he felt the internet wasn't as well developed as more traditional methods of people sharing their views on music.
He added: "I'm unconvinced that the internet has replaced the club or the concert hall as a forum for people to share ideas and passions about music. Social networking models such as Twitter and foursquare are early efforts at this but have some way to go to emulate the ecosystem that labels such as Island drew upon, the interconnected club and studio worlds of managers, musicians, artists and record company mavericks, let alone pay for such a fertile environment."Posted on 20 Sep 2010 16:30 to category : Music News
