After The New York Times Magazine revealed that Universal Music Group lost nearly 500,000 song master recordings, many from iconic artists of the 20th and 21st century, in a 2008 fire, the company has now responded in a statement to Variety.
A feature in The New York Times Magazine has revealed that the master recordings of nearly 500,000 songs in a Universal Music Group archive from artists spanning the 20th and 21st century were destroyed in a massive fire from 2008.
Radiohead had about 18 hours of records stolen from them from the recording session of their 1997 landmark album OK Computer and held for ransom. So, what does the band decide to do? Release it for a small price with proceeds going to charity.
