Maybe he needs a new car…

Radiohead, who have been widely commended for their innovative “pay as you wish” program launched for In Rainbows, have gone on record stating it as a one time deal.

Tom Yorke told the Hollywood Reporter ” think it was a one-off response to a particular situation… It was a one-off in terms of a story. It was one of those things where we were in the position of everyone asking us what we were going to do. 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”.

It’s no secret that the program was set up in direct response to Radiohead’s disdain at the old-school major label model, having occurred directly after their separation from EMI.

Fans should expect to be paying for future Radiohead releases.
