Radiohead has debuted in Apple’s iTunes Store.
The group’s latest album, “In Rainbows,” a self-release, which was the subject of an experiment earlier this year in which fans could set their own prices (or no price at all) for downloading from Radiohead’s site, is now available for US$9.99 as an iTunes Plus (DRM-free, 256kbps AAC) download. That experiment ended in early December when Radiohead entered into negotiations with Apple’s iTunes Store. “In Rainbows” is currently the only Radiohead album available via iTunes Store.
Although Radiohead has long resisted “breaking up their album” into songs that can be sold separately, iTunes Plus songs from “In Rainbows” are indeed now available individually for 99-cents each via iTunes Store.
MacDailyNews Take: Steve Jobs usually gets his way eventually and, in this case as with many others, Apple’s customers benefit.
Direct link to Radiohead’s “In Rainbows” via Apple’s U.S. iTunes Store where customers have the choice to download either the album or individual songs here.
