Radiohead release disturbing video for previously unreleased OK Computer track ‘I Promise’

Radiohead have released a disturbing video for previously unreleased OK Computer track I Promise, which will feature on the album’s 20th anniversary edition, OKNOTOK.


Radiohead release disturbing video for previously unreleased OK Computer track I Promise – one of three new songs to feature on 20th anniversary edition of the album.

The video centres around a young man as he travels through a city on a bus, taking in a dark and ominous world. At the end it is revealed it is a bodiless android head, discarded on its perpetual journey and haunted by painful memories.

The video was directed by Michal Marczak, who has worked with Thom Yorke and Radiohead in the past.

I Promise is one of three unreleased songs that will feature on the 20th anniversary reissue of OK Computer – others include studio recordings of Man of War and Lift.

As Pitchfrok note, BBC Radio 6 host Steve Lamacq premiered I Promise, saying he’d heard the band were “especially pleased to find [the song] in the vaults, because they thought it’d been lost over the years.”

OKNOTOK is out on June 23 via XL.
