Thom Yorke Continues His Release Experiment With New Song

2014 was a good year for Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, he simultaneously dropped an excellent album and posited a well received solution to a serious, nay the serious, issue plaguing the music industry: distribution of music that provides fair compensation for artists. This fall Yorke surprise released his album Tomorrow's Modern Boxes via the launch of a new BitTorrent service that allows for artists to publish-for-purchase directly to fans, essentially cutting the middle man out of the distribution process. The effect? For $6 Thom Yorke was fairly compensated for his work, and fans were fairly charged for it. BOOM.

BitTorrent's year in review wrap cites the experiment as a success, slotting Yorke as the year's number one artist legally downloaded via the service, and Yorke has continued his experiments in distribution by dropping a dropping a name your price bonus track: "Youwouldn'tlikemewhenI'mangry."

Tomorrow's Modern Boxes is out now via Thom f*@#in Yorke on Bandcamp and BitTorrent.
