The song is on Kid Amnesiae, Radiohead’s next album of obscure recordings from the early 2000s, which will be released in November.
We are slowly approaching the end of 2021, a year that has left us with our eyes wide open. And it appears that, at least on the musical front, we will continue to be treated to a number of surprises in the coming months. In addition to getting their act together by releasing new albums, some bands and artists, such as Radiohead, have rushed to dust off previously unseen work and offer it to their fans after such a long time.
Since 2016, the iconic British rock band has been reintroduced to the public eye. The eerie official video for “If You Say The Word” by Thom Yorke’s band has just been released. The song is from the yet-to-be-released album Kid Amnesiae, a collection of rarities produced in the early 2000s.
This is a collection material that will include, in addition to KID A and Amnesiac – records that are 21 and 20 years old, respectively – the small treasures that fans adore, such as B-sides, rarities, and, most importantly, a handful of unreleased tracks.
However, they have now shocked us by releasing the official music video for this song, made by Norwegian filmmaker Kasper Häggström. We witness a really fascinating narrative in which a pair of guys “hunt” a group of individuals who appear to be CEOs in order to return them to their “home,” which appears to be in the center of a mostly abandoned city with briefcases, skyscrapers, and so on. Of course, this is all from a genuinely dismal perspective. It likely draws inspiration from pandemic lockdowns.
Undoubtedly, this new Radiohead music video is a surprise on all platforms and has created quite a stir among fans who are still eagerly awaiting the release of Kid Amnesiae.
