Radiohead's entire discography is now available to stream on Spotify.

The band have previously withheld their music from the online streaming site, with frontman Thom Yorke comparing Spotify in 2013 to "the last desperate fart of a dying corpse".

He has been been highly critical of how streaming services pay musicians. "Make no mistake new artists you discover on Spotify will no get paid [sic]," Yorke tweeted 2013. "Meanwhile shareholders will shortly being rolling in it."

That year, York and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich removed all their music from Spotify.

But they've been slowly getting their music back on to the streaming service. In June, In Rainbows and A Moon Shaped Pool were made available on Spotify for the first time. Disc two of In Rainbows was added in October, followed by the 2009 one-off singles These Are My Twisted Words and Harry Patch (In Memory Of).

The entire Radiohead discography has been now been added with Thursday's addition of the King of Limbs b-sides Super Collider and The Butcher.

There are still a few exceptions, according to Consequence of Sound. 1993's Pop is Dead is omitted and the EMI/Capitol Records collector's editions - but the band never wanted them to be released in the first place.
