Released 21/07/17 via XL
Rescued from defunct formats, prised from dark cupboards and brought to light after two decades in cold storage… OKnotOK is released through XL Recordings, coinciding (roughly) with the original 1997 release date(s) of Radiohead’s landmark third album OK Computer. OKnotOK features the original OK Computer twelve track album, eight B-sides, and the Radiohead completist’s dream: I Promise, Lift, and Man Of War. The original studio recordings of these three previously unreleased and long sought after OK Computer era tracks finally receive their first official issue on OKnotOK. All material on OKnotOK is newly remastered from the original analogue tapes. OK Computer was originally released on various dates ranging from May to July 1997. Produced by the band and Nigel Godrich, the album features the singles Paranoid Android, Karma Police, Lucky and No Surprises, and is widely cited as one of the greatest works of Radiohead’s - or any artist’s - catalogue. OK Computer was the first Radiohead record to reach number 1 in the UK and to be nominated for the Album of the Year Grammy. In 2015, The National Recording Registry selected OK Computer to be preserved in the Library of Congress as a recording that has proven “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
