Radiohead Remove B-Sides from Streaming Services

If you're a dedicated Radiohead fan, you should already have their catalog saved in the depths of your computer (perhaps even on an external hard drive) -- Well, we hope so at least, as the band have removed their special edition tracks and B-Side songs off all streaming services.

There's always been controversy between Thom Yorke's opinions and consent to stream their music, with very limited amounts of music available to stream since we could remember. A strong Radiohead fan noticed it and posted on Reddit this morning, saying their profiles now display the rightsholders for each record as XL Recordings rather than Warner Music.

Warner Music Group stated,

"We are making good progress with the voluntary divestment process that Impala/Merlin and WMG agreed as part of our acquisition of Parlophone Label Group. Numerous independent labels are involved in these negotiations and we are not commenting on individual deals at this stage. We expect to make a joint announcement with Impala/Merlin in due course."

And, furthermore, an XL spokesperson then claimed,

"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."

Will these B-Sides ever be made streamable again? We're unsure. Perhaps a trip to your local record store will do you good.
