RADIOHEAD: THE ALBUM IN RAINBOWS

AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY AT RADIOHEAD.COM

PRE-ORDERS NOW UNDERWAY FOR THE SPECIAL EDITION BOX-SET AND FOR OCTOBER 10 ALBUM DIGITAL DOWNLOAD.

Radiohead.com is open for business with pre-orders having begun today for their 7th studio album In Rainbows, which will be available from October 10 as a DRM-free MP3 download. Also available to pre-order from now is the Discbox, a special edition box set, details of which are below.

Radiohead's fan service, WASTE, is currently taking advance orders for two formats: the album MP3 and the Discbox, which includes double vinyl and CD versions of the record and a second, enhanced CD with additional new songs, artwork, and photographs of the band, all exclusive to the box. Anyone purchasing this deluxe edition will automatically receive the bundled MP3 album on October 10.

Radiohead are currently planning a traditional CD release of In Rainbows for early 2008.

The album was produced by Nigel Godrich. The complete track listing is:

15 STEP
BODYSNATCHERS
NUDE
WEIRD FISHES/ARPEGGI
ALL I NEED
FAUST ARP
RECKONER
HOUSE OF CARDS
JIGSAW FALLING INTO PLACE
VIDEOTAPE
 
The extra songs on the second CD of the Discbox are:
 
MK1
DOWN IS THE NEW UP
GO SLOWLY
MK2
LAST FLOWERS
UP ON THE LADDER
BANGERS AND MASH
4 MINUTE WARNING

According to Idolator, Pitchfork, and NME (who worries that digital downloads are excluded from chart counts, therefore In Rainbows won't be a chart topper), though, the official hardcopy release date will be Dec. 3. Who you gonna believe? Another question: why would Radiohead fans need to pre-order a digital download? Are they going to run out?

For the record, many of the listed In Rainbows tracks were circulating the internets in various forms as early as last spring (when the then-mysterious album was deemed "LP7" by uploaders), and Will Spitz put together a handy track-by-track guide to the songs - check it out here.
