English rock band Radiohead is moving into month two of the promotion of their latest album, A Moon Shaped Pool, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down. Next Friday, June 17, record stores globally can stream their album for an entire day. There will also be competitions and instructional artworks and much more, according to their official website.
Earlier this week, the band announced they would also be allowing fans to listen to the album in its entirety via Spotify, starting June 17, the same day the physical album is released, even though lead vocalist Thom Yorke and producer Nigel Godrich have spoken out against the streaming service in the past.
“It’s an equation that just doesn’t work,” Godrich said ahead of pulling many of their newer releases from Spotify in 2013. “Make no mistake, new artists, you discover on #Spotify will not get paid. Meanwhile shareholders will shortly being rolling in it.”[sic]
Other than their new album, you can find Radiohead’s complete discography available on Spotify right now. Due to copyright issues, In Rainbows was missing from their collection, but they completed the catalog and it can be streamed for the first time.
