Radiohead is utilizing the Internet for another initiative built around its chart-topping album, “In Rainbows.”
The U.K. rock act has teamed with iTunes and GarageBand for an interactive project which allows fans to rework “Nude,” released yesterday (March 31) as the second single from “In Rainbows.”
Wannabe remixers can buy five separate tracks from the recording — bass, voice, guitar, strings/effects and drums — from iTunes Plus. On purchasing all five elements, the customer will be sent an access code to complete the task via the GarageBand or Logic music production software.
Finished mixes can be uploaded to Radioheadremix.com, where the public has until May 1 to listen and vote for their favorite. Bedroom remixers can also create a widget for their personal Web profile that will tally votes toward the competition.
Meanwhile, the band will play a special gig today for BBC Radio 2 at Broadcasting House in central London.
