Buy Radiohead for Whatever You Want
October 4, 2007 9:41 AM
Allow me to digress from online video for a moment.
English rock band Radiohead is releasing its newest album "in Rainbows" online at www.inrainbows.com and you can pay whatever you want for it. The album won’t be available in stores, on Amazon or iTunes. Nope—the band is sans label and doing it solo.
So in support of this bold new effort, one that frankly puts the artist and the consumer firmly in control of their destinies, I went online and paid about $10 for the album, the same price I would pay for an album on iTunes.
Now, I’ve never been a Radiohead fan. And that’s simply because I’m not familiar with the band’s music. But in support of this daring new test of online consumption of media, I encourage all of my blog readers to buy the album.
Make a point!
Pay whatever you want! Because how many times will you have the chance to do so?
Take the opportunity and let’s see where it goes.
Music now, TV next.
