Looks like “In Rainbows” will be the great equalizer: no advance copies, so probably no leaks — just a world full of Radioheadheads pressing play on the same day. Meanwhile, another press mailing this morning mentioned “Radiohead are planning a traditional CD release of In Rainbows for early 2008.” So, really, we’ve got a band-sanctioned album leak complete with tip jar, a deluxe package, and the eventual record-store release of the album. It’s a nice way of challenging the traditional model, of embracing the way people get their music, and of framing a host of new issues and alternatives for industry wonks to debate and consider for a long time to come.
