The last remix for ‘In Rainbows’ track, ‘Nude’, saw “6,193,776, Page Views: 29,090,134, Hits: 58,340,512, Bandwidth: 10.666 Terabytes, Number of mixes: 2,252, Number of votes: 461,090, Number of track listens: 1,745,304,” the band revealed in a note to fans despatched in the early hours today.
The band this week announced a second remix project, offering track ‘Reckoner’ in its entirety through iTunes for remixing by others.
Also this week it was revealed that the band sold 85,000 copies of the box set that was made available briefly online. It was also confirmed that the only way Radiohead’s multi-stepped release strategy was made workable was by the band itself hosting all its rights with Warner/Chappell, rather than having to negotiate separately with an array of rights-holders.
“What was evident is that licensing needs to be a lot simpler for all concerned,” a source told Distorted Loop.
