Radiohead release 18 hours of previously unheard music after extortion attempt

Radiohead were hacked release OK Computer Mini Disc sessions to aid Extinction Rebellion Let down drinking Shamp
Hannah Rogers | 11 June, 2019, 18:10

News of the leak was made public by a Reddit user in the Radiohead subreddit, where fans then collaborated on a Google doc collating info about the sessions.

If you ever wanted to get your hands on 18 hours of previously unreleased OK Computer-era Radiohead music taken from Thom Yorke's "minidisk archive" (?), you have some weird hackers to thank. Proceeds go to Extinction Rebellion, "an worldwide movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to achieve radical change in order to minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse".

Greenwood goes on to say: "Instead of complaining - much - or ignoring it, we're releasing all 18 hours on Bandcamp in aid of Extinction Rebellion".

According to its website, Extinction Rebellion is an "international movement that uses non-violent civil disobedience to achieve radical change in order to minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse".

You might've caught wind of last week's big leak of rough demos, unreleased music, and more from Radiohead's OK Computer sessions.

The minidisc tracks were recorded by frontman Thom Yorke, with a total of 18 tracks running to just less than 17 hours.

From now until June 28th, you'll be able to spend £18 ($23) to, in the words of Greenwood "find out if we should have paid that ransom".

Greenwood describes the sessions as "only tangentially interesting, and very, very long".

The entire archive of tracks has a size of 1.8GB in size and, after purchase, Radiohead will get access to online streaming via the Bandcamp app and can also download them all in MP3, FLAC and more audio formats. Not a phone download.
