Thom Yorke has acquired millions of dollars with the release of his latest album Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes through BitTorrent‘s recently launched “Bundles” program, which combines free downloads with paid products. Eclipsing over four million downloads since late September, Yorke’s album release has made the Radiohead frontman the most legally downloaded BitTorrent artist in 2014 in addition to netting the singer a respectable amount of banknotes. Hoping that his involvement and BitTorrent’s “Bundles” program will become a legitimate alternative to traditional music releases, Yorke divulges an interesting new way to release material in response to the technology-driven availability of music changing how today’s consumers are receiving and listening to new tunes. Reportedly earning between $1-$6 million USD from the Bundles program, Yorke has undoubtedly made the most of this innovative venture. Stay tuned for further news on BitTorrent’s “Bundles” program and leave your thoughts on this process below.
