Radiohead To Release New Album, With A Price

Radiohead is releasing its eighth studio album, this time with a price.

The band announced Monday that its latest release, The King of Limbs, will be available as early as Saturday. Unlike its last pay-what-you-want album, In Rainbows, this one will have a price.

Fans can pre-order an MP3 download for $9 or a higher-quality WAV version for $14. For approximately $50, there’s also an extensive “Newspaper Album” that includes two vinyl records and deluxe packaging.

The band didn’t explain its pricing philosophy this time around. Its In Rainbows release in 2007 was seen as radical at the time, and was generally viewed as both lucrative and popular.
