Twenty years ago, English rock band Radiohead hit fame with their breakout album OK Computer. With its slow drama and morose details, this album received widespread acclaim. Now, the band has hinted that they will release a special 20th-anniversary edition of the breakthrough album.
Last week, mysterious postings began popping up that hinted that something big—having to do with the 20th anniversary of OK Computer— was soon going to happen. Then, the band released a short video teaser once again hinting that they had something planned to celebrate the 20th year anniversary. Now, the group has relaunched their website to announce the new edition of the impressive album.
The name of the album will be OKNOTOK 1997-2017 and will include three tracks that have never been released—”lift”, “I Promise” and “Man of War”. But, that is not all—the album will include eight b-sides and a remastered version of OK Computer.
The new 20th Anniversary Edition Album will release on June 23rd. It will be available as a digital download, a double CD and a triple LP that is pressed on 180-gram vinyl and housed in a triple-gatefold sleeve.
A special Boxed Edition will be available sometime in July. This box has a dark image of a burned copy of OK Computer on it. It includes three 12-inch heavyweight 180-gramme black vinyl records, full lyrics to all tracks and a C90 cassette mix tape taken from OK Computer demo tapes and sessions archives. There is also a book that contains more than 30 original never before seen artwork pieces.
