Radiohead’s New Album Comes In 10 Days

Radiohead fans and other salivating webgeeks were disappointed last week when a site called — which featured a countdown clock until the band’s supposedly new album — turned out to be a hoax.

But misdirection led to some truth, and tonight we are hearing news of a pending release: Radiohead has just put up a link on to pre-order their new album In Rainbows. The new material will available for download in only 10 days, October 10th. And in a case of the ultimate switcharoo, now redirects you right to the official InRainbows site, where you can pre-order the album. Now that, my friends, is what we call craisins.

Or is this all just another hoax? If it’s real, Radiohead has found an incredibly creative way to bypass leaks and can revolutionize the industry with tonight’s announcement. Those old-fashioned types who want an actual CD will have to wait until December 3rd, when the discboxes will be shipped. We can’t wait to see what Bob Lefsetz has to say about this news. Thanks to Jez for the heads-up.
