Radiohead have been giving us a lot this year as they celebrate the 21st anniversary of Kid A and 20th anniversary of Amnesiac. KID A MNESIA is a triple album that’s coming out November 5, which features both the original albums and a third disc composed of unearthed goodies from those sessions. Today, they’ve shared another treat before the project drops this Friday with the previously unreleased song “Follow Me Around” and a video directed by Us.
“Follow Me Around” originates from the OK Computer era and was performed during sound checks on tour. “The first (and only) somewhat official recording of the song appears in the 1998 documentary Meeting People Is Easy,” reads the press release, “where the band performed it at a soundcheck in Fukuoka, Japan. ‘Follow Me Around’ made its proper live debut at a Toronto concert in October 2000, when Thom performed the song acoustically, after fans campaigned for it to be played live on the Radiohead fan site followmearound.com.”
Watch the video below for the track, in which Guy Pearce stars as the guy being followed around.
