Thom Yorke called the streaming service “the last desperate fart of a dying corpse" in 2013
Radiohead have made their entire discography available to stream on Spotify.
The Oxford five-piece have previously withheld their music from the Swedish streaming platform, with frontman Thom Yorke famously likening Spotify to “the last desperate fart of a dying corpse” in 2013. In the same year, Yorke and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich removed their music from Spotify.
However, as Consequence of Sound reports, Radiohead’s entire discography has now been made available to listen to on Spotify – two of the last remaining tracks, ‘The King of Limbs’ B-sides ‘Supercollider’ and ‘The Butcher’, follow 2009 singles ‘These Are My Twisted Words’ and ‘Harry Patch (In Memory Of)’ in being listed on the streaming site.
Consequence of Sound also notes that there are still a few, albeit either rare or properly official, exceptions: Pablo Honey outcast “Pop Is Dead” isn’t available on Spotify, and neither is the EMI/Capitol Records-curated collector’s editions (which were released without the band’s participation).
Listen to the newly-added Radiohead tracks below.
