Thom Yorke Album Available Via BitTorrent Today As First Pay-Gated Bundle

The album, called Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, is now available to anyone with the BitTorrent client for $6. Yorke’s album is the first pay-gated Bundle, which isn’t at all surprising, considering Radiohead’s game-changing approach to music distribution with In Rainbows. The 2007 album was released as a pay-what-you-want download, which was a first for a major act. The company’s goal is to allow any artist or publisher to create and distribute a pay-gated Bundle. Yorke set the $6 price for Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, his first solo release in eight years.
