Submission + - New Radiohead album's price: You choose

syphoon writes: British band Radiohead have announced the forthcoming release of their new album "In Rainbows" on October 10th. Unencumbered by a label contract, they have opted to sell it as both a download and a disc box. The interesting part? Not only will it be DRM-free, but the price of the download is completely up to the customer.

Submission + - Radiohead allows fans to decide on price 2

radicalskeptic writes: "Radiohead, a band known to be unhappy with other music download services, has decided to release their next album, "In Rainbows", in two formats: a £40 boxed set and a digital download. What's the catch? Customers who purchase the digital download are able to name their own price for the album. This is the first Radiohead release since their contract with EMI expired. As "The Majors" continue to lose relevance, can we expect more of this type of experimentation and flexibility from independent artists?"
