Thom Yorke Speaks To Fans After New Album Release
[b]Radiohead[/b] frontman [b]Thom Yorke[/b] has posted a message to fans on the band's official website Radiohead.com, saying the band are glad the new album is "finally out there."
In a post entitled 'Hard Hats On' the Yorke said it was "a relief" that Radiohead's seventh album 'In Rainbows' was finally released yesterday (October 10).
In the website post the singer says : "Hope you are enjoying listening to the download of 'In Rainbows'. It's a relief to us all that finally it's out there. It's been a mad couple of weeks, as I'm sure you can imagine."
Yorke also shares an arcticle in [b]The Wire[/b] magazine that he found whilst in the pub yesterday. He quotes a [b]Robert Wyatt[/b] interview: "I love pop music to death. Most great composers rely on folk music. I rely on pop music. I'm not saying I'm a great composer or that pop music is folk music. There's a whole endless thing going on out there. You make your little pond but if your pond isn't connected to the river, which isn't connected to an ocean, it's just going to dry up. It's just a little piss pool. I've lived too long to be happy in a pond."

As previously reported, Radiohead caused a stir within music industry by announcing just eleven days ago that they were to release their seventh album as a download directly to fans through their website. They have also left it up to fans to choose how much to pay for the download.
The album is currently only available exclusively through Radiohead.com for now, but the band say that they are current planning a "traditional CD release" via record label distribution for 'In Rainbows' early next year. Their managers Bryce Edge and Chris Hufford revealed on Radio 4 last week that the album could possibly be released as early as January.
