  • Thom Yorke Spotify Nigel Godrich Protest Atoms for Peace

    Spotify and Nigel Godrich Trade Shots in Debate Over Thom Yorke Streams, Royalties

    As previously reported, Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich pulled Atoms for Peace's Amok and Yorke's Eraser from Spotify and Rdio after voicing their grief with the streaming service's alleged inability to pay out meaningful amounts to up-and-coming artists. "New artists get paid fuck all with this model," Godrich wrote. "It's an equation that doesn't work." He acknowledged that it's fine enough for artists with extensive back catalogs like Pink Floyd, calling it "money for old rope."Of course, the folks at Spotify see things a bit differently.

Things were a bit more tame yesterday — well, barring the man's hair, which'd been teased into a compact 'fro. Yes, after decades of riding the wave, Prince is sporting a natural, the size and shape of which make a ridiculous combination with his circular specs.
