Many folks have been asking how the band did and aside from a few rumours its not been completely clear so this is much awaited news.http://www.nme.com/news/radiohead/40444
The statistics behind the pay-what-you-like release of Radiohead's 'In Rainbows' album, released on October 10 last year online, have been revealed today (October 15).
According to reports most fans chose to pay nothing to download the album. However, it still generated more money before it was physically released (on December 31) than the total money generated by sales of the band's previous album, 2003's 'Hail To The Thief'.
Warner Chappell concluded that the new release style was a financial success, but did not reveal whether Radiohead plan to release an album in a similar way in the future.
Its a bit discouraging that they didnt feel fit to release the actual average price but no doubt they dont want to give ammunition to those who may make wild claims based on the figure one way or the other.
