Radiohead’s first single from new album ‘In Rainbows’ will be ‘Jigsaw Falling Into Place‘ on January 14. The album however will actually get a physical release on CD and vinyl just before the end of the year.
The album will now be released through XL Recordings on December 31. Meanwhile, the band have distanced themselves from reports that most people who downloaded the record did so for free and took advantage of Radiohead’s offer to let fans name their own price.
“In response to purely speculative figures announced in the press regarding the number of downloads and the price paid for the album, the group’s representatives would like to remind people that, as the album could only be downloaded from the band’s website, it is impossible for outside organisations to have accurate figures on sales,” they explained.
The statement added: “However, they can confirm that the figures quoted by the company comScore Inc are wholly inaccurate and in no way reflect definitive market intelligence or, indeed, the true success of the project.” [source: NME]
