Radiohead are reportedly set to release the studio version of ‘I Promise’, a previously-unheard song from the ‘OK Computer’ sessions, as a single on Friday (June 2).
The stand-alone release of ‘I Promise’ will precede the arrival of the band’s twentieth anniversary reissue of their iconic third studio album, which will be released as a deluxe box set on June 23.
The reissue, entitled ‘OKNOTOK’, will feature 11 rarities that include three previously-unreleased studio tracks – of which ‘I Promise’ is one. Radiohead fans on Reddit have now discovered that ‘I Promise’ will be released a stand-alone single on Friday, with the track set to be made initially available on digital streaming services.
Radiohead have included ‘I Promise’ in their live sets since it was debuted in 1996. Watch footage of a rendition of the track from that year below.
