Well, thank you, Alex. You have tipped me off to great news. Radiohead will be releasing their new cd much earlier than anticipated. To order go here. You can order what they are calling a "music box" version. This is the regular album (a physical copy that they will ship to you on or before Dec. 3rd). If impatience is your name, or digital is your game, then you can order a digital version directly from them. That version will be available for download on October 10th.
How many bands on Earth could do this? They are releasing it independently, and I wish them the best of luck with that. I'm sure they won't need it.
