Radiohead’s reissue of OK Computer, OKNOTOK will mark the 20th anniversary of the seminal album, and the band just released a new video this morning of the newly unearthed track “I Promise.”
“I Promise” is the first of three studio recordings to be unearthed from the OK Computer sessions; unreleased versions of “Man of War” and “Lift” are still to come. The album has also been remastered and appended with eight B-sides for the 20th anniversary reissue. Premiering “I Promise” last night, BBC Radio 6 host Steve Lamacq said he had heard the band were “especially pleased to find [‘I Promise’] in the vaults, because they thought it’d been lost over the years.”
In March, Pitchfork celebrated the 20th anniversary of OK Computer with a series of features. Revisit them here.
