Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich pull music from Spotify

14 July 2013, 19:37 | Written by Ryan Thomas

Both Atoms for Peace’s Amok and Thom Yorke’s solo album The Eraser have been removed from Spotify. The move is an apparent stance against how little artists stand to actually benefit from such a streaming service.

Producer Nigel Godrich took to Twitter an hour ago saying, “Someone gotta say something. It’s bad for new music..”

While Godrich announced it as a ‘small meaningless rebellion,’ he also said this:

Godrich also pulled all material from his other project, Ultraísta. Meanwhile, Radiohead’s back catalog, with the exception of In Rainbows (which does stream elsewhere) and inclusion of 2011′s King of Limbs, remains available to stream on Spotify.
