Radiohead sets US release for In Rainbows

    Coming on the heels of last week’s announcement of a December 31 UK release, ATO records has announced a January 2, 2008, release in the United States for Radiohead’s In Rainbows. The record will be officially released on Radiohead’s own branch of ATO called TBD Records.[more:] A label spokesperson cited issues clearing the rights to other label names so, in the spirit of the great Shakespeare and his off-handedly named play “As You Like It,” Radiohead will release their album in America on a label called TBD. It was previously rumored that the album would arrive in American stores on January 1, a rumor since quashed because most stores are closed on New Year’s Day. The album will arrive on a Wednesday, putting Radiohead one day behind a traditional release week though no one seems particularly worried about this affecting the album’s chart placement the following week. ATO closed saying, “TBD/ATO are currently focusing on both ‘Bodysnatchers’ and ‘Jigsaw Falling Into Place’ as the North American radio singles.”
