Thom Yorke has predicted the death of the music industry.
The 41-year-old Radiohead frontman – who split from record label EMI in 2007 after recording six albums – has advised aspiring musicians to try and make it on their own, rather than sign a deal with a major company.
In an interview for a new school textbook, Thom claims the mainstream music industry is dying and this will be „no great loss to the world“ before telling musicians not to „tie themselves to the sinking ship“.
Thom Yorke, 2010
Pop is dead and we have killed it. This is my generation, and I’m not impressed.
Pop is dead.
