Radiohead to release 18 hours of music after hack, ransom

Radiohead hack

The content of the stolen discs is around 18 hours of unreleased recordings from the studio sessions that birthed the band's iconic 1997 album, OK Computer, and today Radiohead announced they are offering the entire collection after the hacker reportedly asked for $150,000 ransom to not share the recordings. "Instead of complaining - much - or ignoring it", Greenwood continued, the band members chose to upload the tracks to Bandcamp, where they will be accessible for the next 18 days. We haven't yet been able to listen to all 18 hours just yet, but it looks as if MINIDISCS [HACKED] will offer a fascinating insight into how Radiohead crafted one of the greatest albums of all time.

For £18 you can find out if we should have paid that ransom.

The statement also confirms that the band never had any plans for the public to hear the sessions, though some of the tracks were on the cassette re-release of OK Computer. They're on sale for £18 ($22.86) for the next 18 days, but the band warned that, with the total size reaching 1.8GB, fans should be prepared to deal with a large download. And very, very long.
