Thom Yorke has announced details of a new solo album called Tomorrow's Modern Boxes.
News of the project landed through a letter co-penned by Yorke and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. The letter says that the LP has been released using a new version of BitTorrent, which fans can now access for a fee of 6 USD.
The letter goes on to explain the reasons behind the experiment, claiming "it could be an effective way of handing some control of internet commerce back to people who are creating the work." Unlike usual torrents, this new system "does not require any server uploading or hosting costs." If you'd rather own a physical copy, a deluxe vinyl version is on sale now at the album's official site.
