Seems to be a bunch of rumors that there is a 20th anniversary release of some kind for Ok Computer. Here is the main reddit thread that goes into the viral marketing type stuff and rumors.

They just posted something to their Facebook page too that seems to play into this. Something's coming.

This is kind of like if DMB released Machead right? Kind of a big deal for massive Radiohead fans.

DMB needs to do something like this for BTCS!!!

I'm excited about this release but I remember hating Lift way back in my teens. It was another radio hit in the making and would've landed them back at the MTV spring break beach house or on the soundtrack to Clueless 2. Instead, we got Karma Police as the fluff single and then SO MANY great singles off this album. Info wasn't as readily available back then but NME (I think...I'm getting old) did a piece after OKC's release that kind of told the story of them ditching many of the songs the label expected to make the album. That, to me, is the moment that highlights best what Radiohead represents as a band. The decision to take creative control over what they release (eventually, how those things were released...) and their image is what set them apart from so many other big acts at the time. Essentially, it's the antithesis of dmb's approach. Imagine if Dave had the balls to tell Flohr to fuck off and demanded the release of the LWS?

I mean I know it's not the right place for it, but Flohr overruling Dave about releasing the LWS I think is not at all what happened. But on topic, this was my first Radiohead album and I love it.

One of the unreleased songs came out today, I Promise - [Only registered users can see links.]

Nothing too groundbreaking, but never much expected it to be based on those '96 performances. Just my opinion, but it kinda seems like a window into what OKC could have been had they decided to just expand on The Bends style... pretty cool to hear.

Beyond excited for this release. Especially for the cassette of demos

Yeah, that definitely feels a lot more like The Bends than OKC.

That is a good video, especially the ending.

But this one is incredible. It's fan made, but still had me flabbergasted:

flac is out there for both, atleast on waffles. still waiting on the 90 min cassette demo tape to leak though. They're giving an online code for that so shouldn't be too too long

I listened today with a simple fiio dac and audiotechnica headphones.... again, blown away. Paranoid Android, Let Down, and No Surprises in particular. My buddy who is an audio engineer stopped by today, and literally got goosebumps when I put on PA for him it was pretty crazy

As for the 3 unreleased tracks, it's great to finally hear the studio versions. Lift is probably my favorite of them. I don't rank them with Polyethylene, How I made My Millions, or Meeting in the Aisle.... but still they are pretty neat to hear.

Can't fucking wait for Kid A in three years. I hope they go the next step and put it out on a 5.1 SACD or something crazy

I like the solo acoustic versions best, but this is still quite lovely:
