Radiohead have remastered their 1997 album OK Computer and will reissue it across three physical formats to mark the 20th anniversary. There will be a super deluxe edition style box set – with all formats including three unreleased tracks and the eight B-sides from the era.
These new editions are dubbed ‘OKNOTOK’; the box set comes with three 180g black vinyl records containing 23 tracks in total – album, three unreleased tracks and B-sides, all remastered, “from the original analogue master tapes”.
Exclusive to the box is a “C90 cassette mix tape” compiled by the band, taken from OK Computer session archives and demo tapes. The good news is that there are download codes inside the box for “everything”.
The vinyl within the big package is housed in a hardcover book along with 40 pages of artwork and lyrics (“except the ones that haven’t really got any lyrics”). You also get a 104-page notebook and a further 48-page sketchbook of artwork and notes.
Triple vinyl OK Computer
A triple vinyl edition gives you the three records in the box in a triple gatefold sleeve (“designed particularly for this record”). This contains the same 23 tracks and comes with a download code. No cassette/download of demos and no books etc.
Finally, a humble two-CD edition covers the same 23 tracks as outlined above with the remastered album, B-sides and unreleased tracks.
All formats are issued on 23 June 2017, except the box set which ships in July. Digital versions (of the 23-tracks) will be available on the same date, including 24-bit WAV downloads.
The box set appears to be exclusive to Radiohead’s online store, although the 3LP black vinyl or the two-CD edition are widely available. Update: The box is now available on Amazon and other retailers.
