Radiohead Streams "A Moon Shaped Pool" On Apple Music And Tidal, But Shuns Spotify

Radiohead Streams "A Moon Shaped Pool" On Apple Music And Tidal, But Shuns Spotify | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

We thought that digital detente had been reached when the first two singles for Radiohead's new album "A Moon Shaped Pool" appeared on Spotify. But apparently, Thom Yorke is just a tease. Over the weekend, Radiohead self-released it's new album, "A Moon Shaped Pool."

Pierre Priot's insight:
Radiohead releases new album through numerous formats from case bound album (£60) to digital and selected streaming services.
If you were expecting to stream it on Deezer or Spotify, you might as well make the jump to another Yorke approved service.

Which also means that it’s nearly impossible for major label bands like Radiohead to know what they should be getting paid, or IF they should be getting paid.
Pierre Priot's insight:

A non disclosure agreement means making sure that artists won't know shit about what they will be paid. #hailtothethief

There are two sides to this argument: one says that if fans are willing to pay insanely high prices, they should be charged that price. The other says that fetching the highest bid is ultimately bad for bands, and corrosive to their fan relationships.
