David Byrne and Thom Yorke on the Real Value of Music [WIRED]

December 19, 2007

Interesting discussion now online from WIRED magazine. Yorke comments that letting fans choose how much to pay for In Rainbows “released us from something. It wasn’t nihilistic, implying that the music’s not worth anything at all. It was the total opposite. And people took it as it was meant. Maybe that’s just people having a little faith in what we’re doing.”

He also mentions that “we’ve made more money out of this record than out of all the other Radiohead albums put together, forever — in terms of anything on the Net.”
