RADIOHEAD announced that its latest release, “The King of Limbs,” will be available as early as Saturday and this time will have a price.
The band didn’t explain its pricing philosophy this time around. Its “In Rainbows” release in 2007 was seen as radical at the time, and was generally viewed as both lucrative and popular.
