Thom Yorke - Thom Yorke's Group Signs Up To Streaming Service After Spotify Snub

Rocker Thom Yorke will give fans the chance to buy new tracks moments after they are performed on stage through a new digital download service.

The Radiohead rocker is set to take to the stage with his side-project Atoms for Peace at the Roundhouse venue in London next week (begs22Jul13), and he has teamed up with start-up business Soundhalo to make the event unique.

Fans will be able to download the band's live tracks and videos through the website almost as soon as the performance begins.

Yorke's Atoms for Peace bandmate Nigel Godrich says, "Part of the reason Soundhalo was interesting to me was that I found myself wondering why, whenever you go to a gig, the next day there are a million shaky, horrible sounding YouTube videos already online.

"But you go and look because you want to see something of your experience. Soundhalo provides something really functional - an experience that you want to remember in front of you as soon as the concert has happened. To be able to relive that is a really great thing."

The move comes after Yorke and Godrich came under fire for pulling Atoms for Peace's music from popular streaming service Spotify earlier this week (beg15Jul13). In a number of tweets, Godrich claimed the site was "bad for new music" as up-and-coming acts do not reap any benefit from their songs appearing on the site.
