Radiohead's first 6 studio albums plus a live one will be released in three different formats this December.
Parlophone is seeking one more venture with Radiohead who have decided to go indie on the release of their latest album 'In Rainbows'.
The label will release a box set containing the band's first six studio albums - 'Pablo Honey', 'The Bends', 'OK Computer', 'Kid A', 'Amnesiac' and 'Hail to the Thief' - plus their 2001 album 'I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings'.
The new release will be dropped on December 10, coming in three different formats - digipaks cost 39.99 pounds, DRM-free 320 kbps MP3s cost 34.99 pounds, and 'Limited Edition' USB stick cost 79.99 pounds. The sets will also come downloadable through Radioheadstore.com.
"We are delighted to offer new and existing fans the chance to get Radiohead's albums in a box set," Miles Leonard, managing director of Parlophone, said. "We are particularly excited about the USB stick, which gives fans an easy and portable way to carry the box set and provides another way of bridging the world between on-line and off-line content."
A special made-to-order discbox of 'In Rainbows', available for pre-order through InRainbows.com, will be dispatched on or before December 3. The band has signed an exclusive deal with XL Recordings to distribute the CD version in non-North America territory.
