Radiohead announce OKNOTOK, a 20th-anniversary reissue of OK Computer featuring unreleased songs

After teasing the world with posters and a little cryptic social media mindfucking, Radiohead have announced the 20th-anniversary reissue of OK Computer. Titled OKNOTOK, the remastered release features eight b-sides from that era (many of which appeared on the Airbag / How Am I Driving? EP), as well as a few unreleased tracks: “I Promise,” “Man of War,” and “Lift,” all three of which Radiohead obsessives had been hoping to hear for years. (Though, bummer that the early recorded version of “Nude” isn’t on here. Maybe in another 20 years!)

OKNOTOK is being released in the summer as a double CD, triple LP, and boxed edition, which you can pre-order here. Here’s how they describe the box set:

Inside a black box emblazoned with a dark image of a burned copy of OK COMPUTER are three heavyweight 180 gram black 12” vinyl records and a hardcover book containing more than 30 artworks, many of which have never been seen before except by us, and full lyrics to all the tracks except the ones that haven’t really got any lyrics.

Under this weighty tome are yet more surprises: a notebook containing 104 pages from Thom Yorke’s library of scrawled notes of the time, a sketchbook containing 48 pages of Donwood and Tchock’s ‘preparatory work’ and a C90 cassette mix tape compiled by us, taken from OK COMPUTER session archives and demo tapes.

OK Computer was released on May 21 in Japan, June 16 in the UK, and July 1 in the US. My dad got it for me while he was on business in Japan. Thanks Dad!! <3 u
