Radiohead B-sides come roaring back to Spotify after disappearing completely

Radiohead’s new album, A Moon Shaped Pool, was released last week to critical acclaim and the elation of diehard fans everywhere. There was really just one problem: no Spotify. Ever the experimenters with new technology, the band’s frontman Thom Yorke has made his thoughts on Spotify perfectly clear, calling it in 2013 “the last desperate fart of a dying corpse.” Suffice it to say, you likely won’t see the new LP on Spotify anytime soon.

No matter, though, Spotify faithful. Once you’ve bought the new album and let its ethereal orchestration roll around in your head for the appointed month or so of gestation, there is still a ton of Radiohead B-side goodness left to explore on your favorite streamer. We’re talking hours and hours worth.

Nearly all the band’s more eclectic tracks that were removed from Spotify in April have made their triumphant return. As reported by Hits Daily Double, music outside the band’s studio LP collection was removed from Spotify and other streamers due to some legalese as the ownership rights moved from the band’s former label, EMI/Parlophone, to the new XL label. Now that music is back and ready for action — including an ample list of beautiful Radiohead tracks from days past.

Serious fans probably have a CD rolling around somewhere loaded with B-sides and outtakes from the band’s more rocking days, and Spotify once again hosts a brilliant selection of those tracks, including classics like India Rubber, How Can You Be Sure, Bishop’s Robes, and many others. Adding to that, there are also the EPs like My Iron Lung, and studio albums including everything from The Bends and Kid A to The King of Limbs — sorry, no In Rainbows, folks.

For those who want the entire catalog, it may be worthwhile heading to Apple Music, or other paid sites with which the band has a less antagonistic relationship. But if you’re looking for some old-school B-sides, Spotify is ready and waiting with plenty of ’90s goodness, and beyond.
