However, don't expect to be able to walk down to your local record shop to purchase the record.
It is being made in two distinct formats. Digital download and Disc box.
The digital download which will be available october 10th "consists of the new album In Rainbows . It does not include the Extra Material contained in the Disc Box. You can download the file digitally from the 10th of October 2007.
YOUR PURCHASE MAY BE SUBJECT TO A TRANSACTION FEE. THIS WILL BE SHOWN AT THE CHECKOUT."
The tracklisting is as follows:
ALL I NEED
HOUSE OF CARDS
JIGSAW FALLING INTO PLACE
How much is it for the digital download you ask? Radiohead have left it up to you to decide how much you want to pay. No joke. At checkout you are asked to put in a price in £. No pre-set price. They are putting everybody on the honor system.
How freaking cool is that?
Well, not nearly as freaking cool as the disc box.
THIS CONSISTS OF THE NEW ALBUM, IN RAINBOWS, ON CD
AND ON 2 X 12 INCH HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL RECORDS.
A SECOND, ENHANCED CD CONTAINS MORE NEW SONGS, ALONG WITH DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHS AND ARTWORK.
THE DISCBOX ALSO INCLUDES ARTWORK AND LYRIC BOOKLETS.
ALL ARE ENCASED IN A HARDBACK BOOK AND SLIPCASE.
THE ALBUM DOWNLOAD AUTOMATICALLY COMES WITH THIS PACK.
