That Time RADIOHEAD Gave Away An Album For Free | Middle 8
My love for Radiohead is no secret and if you’ve been following this blog for a bit, you more than likely are aware. For a little backstory, I first got into Radiohead in middle school, a couple of years after their 2007 album In Rainbows. After going on hiatus with their sixth album Hail to the Thief, many Radiohead fans awaited patiently for what could come next.
Then in 2007, with no contract obligations to make new music and only ten days notice, Radiohead released In Rainbows for free. The current medium for listening to music may make this free release not seem as important, but you have to remember, 2007 was a different time for albums. Streaming didn’t fully take over yet like it has today.
