Radiohead axes 'pay what you like' downloads

Free album 'was a one-off'

Radiohead fans will no longer be able to choose how much to pay for the band's music.

Last year, the indie rock band made history by allowing fans to choose how much they paid to download the digital version of their album In Rainbow, enabling people to get their hands on new tracks for as little as 1p.

However, front man Thom Yorke told The Hollywood Reporter that the move was "a one-off response to a particular situation".

"I don't think it would have the same significance now if we chose to give something away again. It was a moment in time," he said.
