If you’re a fan of English rock band Radiohead then this may be good news for you. The band recently put all of their albums on YouTube. They’re not locked behind any form of paywall either, and you can stream them all completely free of charge.
This ranges from their debut album Pablo Honey from back in 1993, to their 2016 album A Moon Shaped Pool. Also on YouTube are bonus discs like the OK Computer OKNOTOK 1997 2017 reissue, and the b-side track Ill Wind. You can also find their music videos on their channel, but these have been around for much longer. These also vary in resolution, with some being available in Full HD, while others others are stuck at 480p or lower.
Radiohead reportedly put their entire discography on YouTube last Friday. This coincides with Billboard announcing that it will begin factoring in YouTube streams into its calculations for the Billboard 200 albums chart. If you’re wondering what that is, it’s the ranking of most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption. This includes traditional album sales, track sales equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). This begins on 3 January 2020
If you already own Radiohead albums or stream them off another service like Spotify, then this is no big deal. That said, this is a good opportunity to introduce the band to people you know, if you think Radiohead music is the right kind for them.
