Radiohead MP3s Tomorrow

I decided to pay £10 for the new Radiohead album IN RAINBOWS the other day. It was a pay what you want deal online. I just got an email saying that the files will be available for download tomorrow.

HERE IS SOME INFORMATION ABOUT THE DOWNLOAD:

THE ALBUM WILL COME AS A 48.4MB ZIP FILE CONTAINING 10 X 160KBPS DRM FREE MP3s.

Before I purchased these files I was wondering what file format they would be in. The website said nothing about that to my recollection. Would have been nice to see them in a uncompressed format like Flac. How about releasing multi track recordings for remix under a Creative Commons licensee? Not to steal but to extend the commons of free information.

Take the next step Radiohead. Oh and thanks for this first step. Looking forward to the album.
