2007’s “In Rainbows” was issued via an innovative “pay what you can” arrangement, in which fans named their price for a digital download.

Also hitting stores this week is “Here We Go Again: Celebrating the Genius of Ray Charles,” a lively concert album featuring Willie Nelson, Wynton Marsalis and Norah Jones.
