Stanley Donwood on In Rainbows

Work-in-progress images for the artwork for Radiohead’s seventh album, In Rainbows
Radiohead’s seventh album, In Rainbows, in case somehow you didn’t already know, arrived via a weblink today to those who opted into the band’s unique offer to “pay what you like” for it online, and finally shifted attention away from the band’s marketing genius and back onto their music. This should keep fans happy for now, as they wait for the third wave of the In Rainbows release, a box set, designed once again by Stanley Donwood and released in December.
While he is remaining quiet on how the final In Rainbows artwork will look (see CR’s December issue, out late November, for an early peek), Donwood has in fact been dropping hints via the Radiohead website for months now. The images shown here are from a selection that were posted up online over the 10 month period that the record was made.
