Radiohead Artist Donwood Discusses Ditched ‘In Rainbows’ Cover Art

While hordes of creative Radiohead fans across the web render their own In Rainbows cover art, Stanley Donwood, Radiohead’s steadfast artistic collaborator behind most of the band’s album covers, discussed scrapping his work for In Rainbows in a BBC Radio 4 interview yesterday, Gigwise.comreports. “It was a last minute decision, it was all ready to go butended up being left on the laptop,” Donwood said. “What did you missout on? Well, it’s very colorful – I’ve finally embraced color! It’s arainbow but it is very toxic, it’s more like the sort of one you’d seein a puddle.”

While you mentally conjure hue-drenched imagesof transcending beauty, Donwood, despite being a close pal and formerschoolmate of frontman Thom Yorke, didn’t pay a dime for the new album,which was released digitally in an experimental donation system. “…Iwas just checking the website was working,” said Donwood. “If you paidnothing the screen flashed up ‘we value your custom, you’re in aqueue’, whereas if you paid for it you went straight to the downloadcode, just a bit of irony that no one got as normal.”
