Thom Yorke's new album is only available online as a BitTorrent Bundle

Pirates Ahoy !??!?!?

Thom Yorke has a history of going against the grain with his online music sales. His band Radiohead first released In Rainbows as a pay-what-you-want download, and he pulled his solo tunes from Spotify to make a stand on royalty rates. It shouldn't come as a surprise, then, that he's once again bucking trends by launching his latest album (Tomorrow's Modern Boxes) as the first ever pay-gated BitTorrent Bundle

Will this change the way Louisiana musicians release their own titles?  We think not, at least in the short term, but we welcome any tools that will bring more freedom and revenue to our musicmakers, instead of to middle-men.
