Radiohead are planning to release previously unheard track ‘I Promise’ on Friday, in conjunction with the twentieth anniversary reissue of OK Computer.
The newly studio recorded version of ‘I Promise’ comes as the new reissue of OK Computer looks set to include eight b-sides and three unreleased tracks – all of which look to be released on the day of the band’s Glastonbury headline set.
‘I Promise’, which is part of the new releases of the new reissue which has been titled OKNOTOK, will be given a special early release by the band after a very eagle-eyed Reddit user figured it all out.
The single has been a longstanding part of Radiohead’s live set since it was first played in 1996.
After days of teasing around the 20th anniversary of the imperious OK Computer, Radiohead finally gave the fans what they wanted, and that is OKNOTOK – the extended version of the album.
It includes 8 b-sides, three unreleased tracks and will be released on the day of the band’s Glastonbury headline set.
The Radiohead website reads “Rescued from defunct formats, prised from dark cupboards and brought to light after two decades in cold storage… OK COMPUTER: the original twelve track album, three unreleased tracks and eight B-sides, all newly remastered from the original analogue tapes*.
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.”
