Radiohead announce release of remastered version of OK Computer with brand new music
Great news for Radiohead fans.
Having teased it on their Twitter account on Monday, Radiohead have confirmed that they will be releasing a remastered version of their most iconic album, OK Computer, 20 years after its original release.
Having posted a rather cryptic video on their Twitter account on Monday, Radiohead have confirmed that the album, together with three unreleased tracks and eight B sides, will be released on 23 June.

Fans will be able to choose from a vinyl version of the album (€28), a double CD (€12) or a boxed edition containing three heavyweight 180 gram black 12" vinyl records, a hardcover book containing more than 30 artworks (many of which have never been seen before by anyone except the band) and full lyrics to all the tracks except the ones that haven't really got any lyrics.
As well as that, there is a notebook containing 104 pages from Thom Yorke's library of scrawled notes of the time, a sketchbook containing 48 pages of (Stanley) Donwood and Tchock's (A Thom Yorke pseudonym) 'preparatory work' and a C90 cassette mix tape compiled by the band, taken from Ok Computer archives and demo tapes.
All of that, as well as downloadable versions of the 23 tracks, can be yours for €120.
The release of the album coincides with Radiohead’s appearance at Glastonbury on June 23, which, we don’t need to remind fans lucky enough to have a ticket, comes three days after their sold out gig at Dublin’s 3 Arena.
It's hard to predict anything when it comes to Radiohead but the re-release of arguably their best album would suggest that the setlist for the 3 Arena and Glastonbury gigs will be OK Computer heavy, news that will go down well with everyone apart from Father Kevin...
