posted on 6th of december, 2007

Radiohead has launched a new album about one month ago. A controversial one, the album was recorded by the famous band on their own, without any recording label.

Consequently, the album was posted on the Internet and can be downloaded by users at the price they decide. Yep, you read it right, you can buy it for $1 or $100, you choose how to reward the band.
The download will be available until Dec. 10, 07. Album will go through traditional outlets from Dec. 31, 07.

Web 2.0 (almost) frees music!

Well, on 15th of may, NIN becomes the first major band and musical enterprise to actually give an entire album for free, in various formats ranging from simple mp3, to even higher than CD quality Wave format. So, things are moving rapidly.

I think this is a neat thing for them to try out --

This is definitely towards which the industry will go. Especially with controversial or banned stuff. Like Serban said, you require a lot of talent and fans who will buy something that a record label is not willing to take up.
I understood the potential of all this when I had recorded a support song for Michael Jackson during his trial. I expected some 10,000 downloads and to my surprise the song has been downloaded by 400,000 people by now. Remembering that I am a CEO for a music label in India, we are going towards the web market more than the traditional one, at the same time we are not giving up the traditional one totally. Everyone must be already aware of a concept called ROYALTY FREE MUSIC which works on the same model of RF PHOTOGRAPHY concept.

Maybe DT will add this feature in future! What say Serban! ;)

I think the free music and also cheap music-downloads will change the music-market fundamentally. On the other side: look at the prices for concert-tickets. They are growing higher and higher. Many groups are touring again and more than in the past. With concerts they earn the money. I like to go to concerts......... but 120 Euro for Neil Young for example.... I think a little bit too expensive.

Do you think all music will eventually go this route? Or is this just a clever marketing ploy so Radiohead can make more money when more people show up to their concerts?
