This year marks 20 years since the release of the album

After dropping a number of hints, Radiohead have announced a remastered reissue of their 1997 album OK Computer marking its 20th anniversary.

The reissue, entitled OKNOTOK, will feature the original album in remastered form as well as a collection of B-sides and three never-before-released tracks called 'I Promise', 'Lift' and 'Man Of War', all available for the first time in studio form.

OKNOTOK is available for pre-order here and will be released via XL on June 23 coinciding roughly with the original release date of the album.

A boxset edition of the record will feature three 12" records as well as a book containing more than 30 artworks, many of which have never seen before. It also contains a notebook featuring 104 pages from Thom Yorke’s library of scrawled notes of the time, a sketchbook with 48 pages of Donwood and Tchock’s ‘preparatory work’ related to the album and a cassette mixtape compiled by the band, taken from the archives for the OK Computer studio sessions as well as demo tapes.

The announcement of the reissue comes after the band shared a video via Twitter featuring a child reciting lyrics from OK Computer album track 'Climbing Up The Walls', as well as the appearance of a number of posters in cities such as London, Berlin, New York and Los Angeles.
