After teasing fans, Radiohead unveiled details today for a swoonworthy 20th anniversary edition of OK Computer. The new edition, titled OK Computer: OKNotOK 1997 - 2017, arrives in June and includes 23 songs in all: three previously unreleased tracks, eight B-sides, and the newly remastered original album. The previously unreleased tracks are "I Promise," "Man Of War" (aka "Big Boots"), and "Lift."
Radiohead explained their decision to remastered the original material:
"The original analogue tapes are the highest definition version of the record, and nothing will ever beat them. However in the 20 years since the original release mastering technology has improved a lot, and with new equipment and techniques we can make a digital version that's an improvement of the original transfer."
OK Computer: OKNotOK 1997 - 2017 will be released June 23rd on a variety of formats: triple vinyl set (triple gatefold) pressed on 180 gram 12" black vinyl, 2 CD set, and digital download. A boxed edition will be released in July.
The boxed set includes the triple vinyl edition of OK Computer: OKNotOK 1997 - 2017, a hard cover book featuring song lyrics and artwork, notebook containing 104 pages of Thom Yorke's scrawled notes, a 48 page sketchbook, and a cassette mix tape compiled by Radiohead. [A download card for the cassette will be included in the box; fans will be able to download the 23 track OKNotOK on June 23rd).
