OK Go do distribution deal with Sony’s RED

By | Published on Friday 4 June 2010

OK Go have signed a distribution deal with Sony Music’s RED for the re-release of their most recent album, ‘Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky’.

As previously reported, the band parted company with former label EMI earlier this year, taking the album – already released by the major in January – with them. The band had previously expressed various frustrations with the label, in particular over their policy of not letting fans embed their YouTube videos on their blogs.

Following the split, the band launched their own label, called Paracadute Records for the long player re-release, and it is that entity that has done a deal with RED. The band’s previous albums remain with EMI and are not part of the RED deal.
