Tomorrow's Modern Boxes is the second solo album by Thom Yorke of the English alternative rock band Radiohead, released on 26 September 2014. It was produced by Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, with artwork by Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood. The album blends Yorke's vocals and piano playing with electronic beats and textures.
Yorke released Tomorrow's Modern Boxes independently via a paid-for BitTorrent bundle. He and Godrich expressed their wish to find "an effective way of handing some control of internet commerce back to people who are creating the work". The album was downloaded over a million times within six days of release, and became the most-downloaded legal torrent of 2014; by February 2015, it had been downloaded over 4.5 million times.
A vinyl edition was also sold from the official site. On 26 December 2014, Yorke released Tomorrow's Modern Boxes on the online music shop Bandcamp alongside a new song described as an "addendum to the album", "Youwouldn'tlikemewhenI'mangry". The album received generally positive reviews and Rolling Stone named it one of the best of 2014. A CD edition was released in Japan in August 2015 by Hostess Entertainment, and it was reissued on physical formats worldwide in December 2017 by XL Recordings.
