Bad news for Radiohead diehards who flagrantly ignore Thom Yorke's anti-Spotify stance: The U.K. band's pre 2004 b-sides -- previously available on deluxe editions of the group's six albums from that period -- have been removed from Spotify and other digital streaming services, at least for the time being. The deluxe editions appear to be gone from iTunes as well, although CD editions are available from Amazon.
The b-sides disappeared shortly after Radiohead's back catalog became officially credited to XL Recordings instead of Parlophone on streaming services; that change reflects Warner Music Group's divestment of certain assets, including the Radiohead back catalog, to various indie labels.
A spokesperson for XL explained the removal of b-sides with the following statement: "This is the first step in the transfer of Radiohead's back catalogue from Parlophone to XL. The main albums are being made available in their original form as a start, before non-LP material is reconfigured."
