When OK Computer came out, it was one of the most defining moments in ’90s rock. It was the death of rock as a playful thing for boys with guitars and the dawning of a new age of realism in music. Whether you liked it or not, times we changing.
Decades later, Radiohead have reissued the landmark album as a 20th anniversary remastered edition cheekily re-titled OKNOTOK – with 3 unreleased tracks – ‘Lift’, ‘Man of War’ and (fresh off Youtube today) ‘I Promise’.
Although the band have been playing ‘I Promise’ live during their 1996 tour prior to OK Computer‘s release in 1997, the studio version of this song has never been heard.
Once again, Radiohead reminds us why they are so creepily beautiful. Watch the video below:
