XL has released a statement confirming Radiohead’s back catalog is being transferred to the label from Parlaphone. Read the full statement below.
A spokesperson for XL said: “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.” XL previously released Thom Yorke’s The Eraser; Radiohead’s In Rainbows and The King Of Limbs (worldwide excluding North America); and Atoms For Peace’s Amok.
A Spotify spokesperson told Pitchfork in a statement: “As a result of a change in rights ownership of Radiohead’s catalog, the band’s catalog on Spotify has been streamlined, meaning that a small number of products are no longer available. However, the band’s core album catalog remains available to their millions of fans on Spotify as before.” In an earlier statement to Music Ally, Spotify explained that the change was due to “the transfer of Radiohead’s catalog from Warner Music to Beggars Group.”
On Apple Music, the playlist “Radiohead: ’90s B-sides” was down to only two tracks.
Pitchfork has reached out to Beggars, Warner, and Apple for comment.
