The previously unreleased 'Follow Me Around', which the band have performed live sparingly, features on the upcoming 'KID A MNESIA' release

Radiohead have unveiled a studio version of long-time fan favourite and previously unreleased track 'Follow Me Around'.

The track dates back to the OK Computer era of 1997, and has since been performed by the band live only a small number of times. The first, and only, official recording of the song appeared in the 1998 documentary Meeting People Is Easy, where the band performed it at a soundcheck in Fukuoka, Japan. You can watch a new video for the song, featuring the actor Guy Pearce, above.

'Follow Me Around' appears among a number of bonus cuts and demos on Radiohead's upcoming KID A MNESIA release, which collects the band's fourth and fifth studio albums together alongside various extra tracks to mark the records' 20th anniversary.

XL Recordings will release KID A MNESIA on November 5, 2021.
