Radiohead on In Rainbows
4 January 2008, 16:59
Thom Yorke and Ed O'Brien joined John Kennedy for an extensive talk through their brilliant new album.
One of the world's finest bands caused the biggest stir in music in 2007 when they decided to give away their seventh studio album In Rainbows away for free on their own website, therefore bypassing the traditional need for a record company to distribute their new music.
This action looks set to change the music industry for ever with many artists and bands giving their support to Radiohead's groundbreaking decision.
Aside from all that business malarkey 'In Rainbows' is one of their finest albums to date with the band perfectly balancing the mixture of electronics and rock anthems in a hugely enjoyable 45 minutes and the record has just been given a physical release following a one-off deal with XL Records.
Speaking exclusively to John Kennedy, Thom Yorke and Ed O'Brien explain what they've been up to in the last couple of years, domestic life, MP3's and working once again with Nigel Godrich.
