In Rainbows
Hello everyone.

Well, the new album is finished, and it’s coming out in 10 days;

We’ve called it In Rainbows.

Love from us all.
Jonny

Wait, it gets much better…

According to inrainbows.com, the album will be available as digital download or deluxe discbox. Both editions are available for pre-order now. Re: the discbox:

4 MINUTE WARNING

WASTE, we’re very impressed. Unless it’s a hoax. In which case, yeah we knew it all along.

Incidentally, inrainbows.com was registered June 15th. Administrative contact? Sandbag Ltd (W.A.S.T.E.’s sister company). Technical contact? Phil Allsopp (Radiohead.com programmer).

No label? Ten day marketing? Optional pricing? Scatter your brain on that, Rick Rubin.

So, who’s going for the deluxe?

UPDATE: For those nervous to take the e-com jump, we just got a valid e-mail confirmation from W.A.S.T.E.:

This transaction will appear on your credit card bill as WASTE PRODUCTS LTD. or a shortened version of this.

Discbox customers. You goods will be shipped on or before 3rd December 2007 by post. Information regarding the download (included with the Discbox) as per below.

Download customers. You will receive a further e-mail shortly before the 10th October detailing your username and activation code. The e-mail will also provide the link to the download area.
