(Newser) – Radiohead is set to lay to rest its pay-what-you-will offer, which lets fans download the recently released album "In Rainbows" for as much, or (more likely) as little as they like. The promo ends Monday, after which the album will only be available on CD or record, Wired reports—unless iTunes can strike a deal with the band.

Radiohead has eschewed iTunes' single-song download option, demanding fans buy the whole album. Looking for a way around the band's all-or-nothing-at-all attitude, Apple is in talks with the group but declined to comment, Billboard reports. Meanwhile, the band announced plans for a European tour, kicking off June 7 in Dublin—and news on a US leg is on the way.
