Radiohead Release In Rainbows Stateside
Through TBD Records/ATO Records Group on 01/02/08
On January 2, 2008, TBD Records/ATO Records Group will release in North America the physical version of Radiohead's In Rainbows. Released in download format earlier this year, In Rainbows has already received tremendous acclaim in the press. British music magazine Q wrote "In Rainbows is a brilliant work" while Rolling Stone said the album "delivers an emotional punch that proves all other rock stars owe us an apology." New York magazine raved, "Radiohead has made their best music in years, maybe ever."
TBD/ATO are currently focusing on both "Bodysnatchers" and "Jigsaw Falling Into Place" as the North American radio singles. Produced by Nigel Godrich, In Rainbows is the band's seventh studio album and the follow-up to 2003's RIAA certified Platinum Hail to the Thief. More information about the album release and the band's touring plans to follow.
