Here’s Another Unreleased Radiohead Song and Video from the Reissue of OK Computer

Tomorrow (June 23) marks the release of the 20th-anniversary edition of Radiohead’s OK Computer, which is subtitled OKNOTOK. The hook is that it includes three unreleased songs that were for whatever reason abandoned, orphaned or were once left unfinished. The first, “I Promise,” is already in the wild. Today, we have “Man of War” which, frankly, is rather terrifying.

There’s some pretty cool direction and editing in this clip, which was headed up by film director Colin Read. Why is this man being chased? Are these people manifestations of his nighttime fears? And don’t these mysteries make you think of “Just” from The Bends just a bit?

The third unreleased track, out tomorrow on the album, is entitled “Lift.”
