Radiohead have dropped a stack of unreleased music from 1995 to 1998 after hackers leaked the music online. To make it all worthwhile, Radiohead have put £18 price tag on the downloadable version so that socio-political movement Extinction Rebellion can make a few bucks out of it.
In a statement Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead said:
we’ve been hacked
my archived mini discs from 1995-1998(?)
it’s not v interesting
there’s a lot of it
if you want it, you can buy the whole lot here
18 minidisks for £18
the proceeds will go to Extinction Rebellion
as it’s out there
it may as well be out there
until we all get bored
and move on
