WATCH: Radiohead release ingenious new video for previously unreleased track "Man Of War"

With Ireland still on a universal come-down from the crazy highs achieved by Radiohead's gig earlier this week, this couldn't have been released at a better time...

The band are re-releasing OK Computer this week to coincide with the album's 20th anniversary, and on top of the remastered tracks, there are also eight B-sides and three previously unreleased tracks, including "Man Of War", which has just had a brand spanking new video debuted.

Over the years, great directors such as Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood), Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind), Jonathan Glazer (Under The Skin), Garth Jennings (The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy) and loads more besides have worked with Radiohead on their accompanying music videos.

This time round, the relatively unknown Colin Read has been given the opportunity, and he runs with it... literally.

The unsettling video finds our protagonist being thrown seamlessly from day to night, with things taking a creepy turn when he finds photos of himself on a stranger's phone, and soon he is being chased down the street by gangs of expressionless pedestrians.

We're sure lots of people will be able to read into this as being modern day alienation or the sudden threat found in an otherwise safe place, which would very much follow on from Radiohead's music video's modus operandi.

OKNOTOK 1997-2007 is released in full on 23 June.
