"Instead of complaining-much-or ignoring it, we're releasing all 18 hours on Bandcamp in aid of Extinction Rebellion", Radiohead write in a social media statement, naming the environmental activist group as the beneficiary.

Thom Yorke confirmed today that an archive of his old MiniDiscs from around the time of iconic album "OK Computer" was stolen, with the hackers demanding $150,000 unless the band wanted to see the music released.

Radiohead responded to the online leak of a series of rough recordings from their OK Computer era by making the full collection available on Bandcamp. So for £18 you can find out if we should have paid that ransom. Not a phone download.' He added: 'Rainy out, isn't it though?'

Instead of allowing the hacker to release the material, Radiohead released the recordings itself on the music platform Bandcamp, allowing listeners to buy the songs for £18 ($23), with all proceeds going to the global grassroots organization Extinction Rebellion.

It's not v interesting, there's a lot of it. They're on sale for £18 ($22.86) for the next 18 days, but the band warned that, with the total size reaching 1.8GB, fans should be prepared to deal with a large download.
