How… Will Radiohead release it’s next album??

Colin Greenwood (bassist) has written an essay for Britain’s Index on Censorship regarding illegal downloads and their impact on his band, Radiohead‘s release strategies, etc.  Arguably one of the most beloved bands in the world, it is becoming increasingly evident that Radiohead’s ability to make a profit off of their music is severely diminished by illegal downloads and file sharing.  The truth is that while music is being used more than ever, illegal downloads are crippling the music industry.  It may not be long before some musicians cease putting out music.  They may need to fuel their lives with other more meaningful and profitable pursuits.  Nonetheless Radiohead has recorded a new album.  However, their last album which did debut at #1 in several countries had extremely diminished sales and raised a real dilemma.
