Here’s the Ok Computer reissue details

Here’s the Ok Computer reissue details
The 20th anniversary of OK Computer was never going to pass without a chance to buy it again, and the strange posters and teasing video have all pointed the same way. Well, good news if you’re not living out of a food bank: a fully remastered, expanded edition is coming out the same day as Radiohead’s Glastonbury headline slot, aka June 23rd. 
 
So what do you get: a double CD with all the b-sides, a triple vinyl with download codes… and on the CD three previously unreleased tracks. Now, we at Supajam are disappointed it’s just three, but I guess it’s better than zero, and they’re I Promise, Lift and Man of War. 
 
The real prize is the boxset:  “Rescued from defunct formats, prised from dark cupboards and brought to light after two decades in cold storage… OK COMPUTER: the original twelve track album, three unreleased tracks and eight B-sides, all newly remastered from the original analogue tapes,” say the band in a statement. “Inside a black box emblazoned with a dark image of a burned copy of OK COMPUTER are three heavyweight 180 gram black 12” vinyl records and a hardcover book containing more than 30 artworks, many of which have never been seen before except by us, and full lyrics to all the tracks except the ones that haven’t really got any lyrics… Under this weighty tome are yet more surprises: a notebook containing 104 pages from Thom Yorke’s library of scrawled notes of the time, a sketchbook containing 48 pages of Donwood and Tchock’s ‘preparatory work’ and a C90 cassette mix tape compiled by us, taken from OK COMPUTER session archives and demo tapes.”
 
That tape sounds mouthwatering. Or rather the download of it does, because tapes.
