In an interview with The Guardian, Yorke claimed that tech companies are trying to turn songs into commodities, stripping their value as art.
"They have to keep commodifying things to keep the share price up," Yorke said in the interview. "But in doing so they have made all content, including music and newspapers, worthless in order to make their billions. And this is what we want? I still think it will be undermined in some way."
On Monday, July 15th, Thom Yorke took to Twitter to blast music-streaming application "Spotify" for ruining the music business model. Yorke has reportedly pulled his solo songs from "Spotify", claiming that "new artists get paid f*** all with this model."
"Make no mistake, new artists you discover on Spotify will not get paid. Meanwhile shareholders will shortly be rolling in it," he tweeted.
