Radiohead are once again launching a remix contest for their new song “Reckoner”. They previously did this with the song “Nude” off their most recent album In Rainbows. They made the single available for download with different stems for vocals, drums, guitar and made them available for purchase, so that you could remix them. This resulted in their highest chart showing on the Billboard Hot 100 in many many years.

The stems for “Reckoner” will become available on on Sept 23rd (with stems available for Lead vocal, Backing vocal, Guitars, Bass, and Drums) but this time you will be able to purchase them all together for the price of $1 on iTunes rather than separately.

Here is what Thom Yorke has to say via the bands Dead Air Space Blog:

There’s a Remix site going up today for Reckoner here. To start things off we asked James Holden and Diplo to do their versions. Now the elements are already being passed around to other artists..The elements of the song are soon going to be made available to you if you wanna have a go..If it’s anything like the Nude remix site it could get fairly nuts. We’re off to Japan at the weekend.

And this is how crazy successful the first remix project was
