Recently, a series of posters popped up in cities across the globe with cryptic messaging. They also included the years 1997 and 2017. Naturally, Radiohead fans figured there was some connection to the band, particularly to the 20th anniversary of OK Computer. The band then shared a cryptic teaser with “Climbing Up the Walls” lyrics. Now, Radiohead have confirmed a brand new reissue of the record. It’s called OKNOTOK. Along with the original record (remastered from the original analog tapes), the reissue includes three unreleased tracks and eight B-sides. The three unreleased songs on OKNOTOK are “I Promise,” “Man of War,” and “Lift,” which Ed O’Brien once called “a bogshite B-Side,” but Jonny Greenwood said is a “management-favorite.” Find more information at www.oknotok.co.uk
Along with the new reissue announcement, the band overhauled their website to feature assorted art from the OK Computer era. It’s complete with click-through text (as seen on recent posters) that reveals conceptual artwork for the album by designer Stanley Donwood and “Tchock” (aka Thom Yorke). OK Computer originally came out on May 21, 1997.
