EMI and Radiohead are showing that you don’t need a powerhouse like iTunes to get yourself some attention. Always a band known to fight the power, Radiohead is planning on releasing a DRM-free boxset featuring all of their full length albums from 1993-2007, available for CD and digital download, as well as a special USB wave file edition, all of which are 320 bit CD quality.
While Radiohead still maintains that their music is best listened to on an album basis, these DRM-free sets are sure to put a light on each individual track in the long run. All of their long time fans alreay own all of these LP’s anyway. The boxset will be available on December 10. — Andrew Dobrow
