Last.fm Trends: Radiohead Gets Remixed
Radiohead is celebrating the imminent release of their The King of Limbs remix album, TKOL RMX 1234567, with a special London event. With the original release smashing Last.fm charts, it should see a big reaction.
Skimming just over 100,000 weekly listeners at their lowest over the past six months, Radiohead are certainly not short on fans – but new tracks could reinvigorate interest further and arrest that decline.
Moreover, association with The King of Limbs could boost the remixers themselves, a selection of whom are shown in the graph above. Artists like SBTRKT are rising sharply to catch up with established acts Caribou and Four Tet, and if they can tap into Radiohead’s fan base then they’ll be in luck.
