Hot on the heels of the announcement of XL releasing the acclaimed and ambitious In Rainbows comes the official international release date. The album will hit shelves on December 31 so fans can ring in the new year with Radiohead. However, details have not been finalized for a release date in the states.
On the subject of In Rainbows, a statement on the band’s behalf was released assessing the allegations of people paying an average of six US dollars for the album as “wholly inacurate” and “in no way reflecting definitive market intelligence or the true success of the project. The group’s representatives would like to remind people that, as the album could only be downloaded from the band’s Web site, it is impossible for outside organizations to have accurate figures on sales.”http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003670164
