Unlock Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes

A step-by-step guide to the new album by Thom Yorke. Read more about the project here.

Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes is a new album from Thom Yorke. It is the artist’s first solo record in eight years. It is a project conceived of in conversation with, and collaboration with, fans. It is music and video and art. It is an experiment: the first paygated BitTorrent Bundle. And it is an alternative vision of how the creative Internet can work: for creators, for good. Here’s how you can unlock it.

Step 1: Go to the Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes Bundle Page.

Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes is available digitally as a BitTorrent Bundle. You can unlock this Bundle through a $6 payment, with 90% of that payment going directly to Thom Yorke. Every download is its own storefront. Which means every download increases in value, each time it’s shared. To download Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, go to the BitTorrent Bundle page.

Step 3: Start Your Download.

Bundles are a different kind of file, built on BitTorrent technology. To download or open them, you’ll need a BitTorrent app. Once you’ve finished purchasing Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, you’ll be given the option to download just the Bundle, or download the BitTorrent app with the Bundle.

If you don’t have a BitTorrent Client, you can download it with the Bundle.

Choose “I already have a torrent client” if you have a torrent app. Open the Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes torrent file; the Bundle will appear in the Torrents view of the app.

If you’re on a PC, and you don’t have BitTorrent installed:
– You’ll be given the option to download the BitTorrent Client Installer
– Click Open / Run
Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes will be placed in your Torrents view
– The Bundle will start downloading automatically

If you’re on a Mac, and you don’t have BitTorrent installed:
– Select download, and open the BitTorrent.dmg
– Drop it into your Applications folder
– Follow the prompts to download the Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes torrent file
– Once the BitTorrent app is installed, open the torrent file
– It will be automatically added to your Torrents view

To start your download, double-click the Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes file.

BitTorrent currently doesn’t offer an iOS client. If you’ve purchased the Bundle on an iPhone or iPad, you’ll get an email with a link to downloading the file from your PC, Mac, or Android device.

Step 4: Play Your New Album.

Once the download is complete, you can start playing. Your Bundle can only be downloaded twice. Contact Bundle Support if you’re having trouble accessing your download.

If you’re on a PC, right-click the Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes torrent in the client, and select “Open Containing Folder”. Once the window appears, you can open files directly, or drag them into your player of choice (iTunes, Spotify, Windows Media Player, VLC).

If you’re on a Mac, right-click the Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes torrent in the client, and select “Show in Finder”. Once the folder window appears, you can open the files directly, or drag them into your media player.

Step 5: Share Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes.

If you like the album, do the Internet a solid. Spread the word.
