Thom Yorke Releases New Solo Album Through BitTorrent
Following a series of mysterious tweets Thom Yorke, front man for Radiohead has released his sophomore solo album Tommorrow's Modern Boxes via the file sharing platform Bittorrent. The album comes as a surprise to fans, many of whom assumed that the mysterious tweets by Thom would result in a new Radiohead project.
The distribution of the album is an experiment that Yorke says, "could be an effective way of handing some control of internet commerce back to the people who are creating the work". If successful Yorke hopes that others will follow suit and bypass other online distribution methods that he has been openly critical of in the past.
