  • Thom Yorke est le chanteur du groupe britannique Radiohead. LP  FREDERIC DUGIT

Face à ce chantage, Radiohead a répondu de la meilleure des façons puisque le groupe a tout simplement décidé de faire fuiter les enregistrements. La raison? Couper l'herbe sous le pied à un hackeur qui menaçait de diffuser les archives musicales.

Radiohead a reconnu avoir été piraté: depuis une semaine, un hacker détenait 18 minidiscs contenant "l'ensemble des sessions d'enregistrement" de l'album OK Computer.

"Nous avons été piratés la semaine dernière. Quelqu'un a volé des archives des minidiscs de Thom datant environ de l'époque de OK Computer et aurait exigé 150 000 dollars américains menaçant de les diffuser", a raconté mardi sur Twitter le guitariste Jonny Greenwood.

"Alors au lieu de - trop - se plaindre ou de l'ignorer, nous sortons les 18 heures (d'enregistrements) sur Bandcamp au profit d'Extinction Rebellion".

Ce matériel sonore n'est pas vraiment intéressant, a précisé Thom Yorke. Uniquement durant les 18 prochains jours. Mardi, ils pouvaient aussi les écouter gratuitement en diffusion en continu. L'opération peut difficilement être taxée d'arnaque marketing: la totalité des fonds récupérés seront reversés à l'association activiste Extinction Rebellion, dont l'objectif est la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique et la protection de la biodiversité. Ils avaient été plusieurs milliers à participer en avril à onze jours de blocages à Londres, au cours desquels la police a procédé à plus d'un millier d'arrestations.
