Radiohead Dedicate OK Computer Reissue To Thom Yorke’s Late Partner

Radiohead are about to release OKNOTOK 1997-2017, a new 20th anniversary reissue of their 1997 classic OK Computer. And, as one fan who snagged an early copy discovered, the band have dedicated the reissue to Thom Yorke’s ex-partner Rachel Owen, who passed away last year. “this re-issue is dedicated to the memory of dr rachel owen 1968-2016 who died after a long and brave battle with cancer,” reads a note on the album’s back sleeve. “we hope you are ok. thank you for listening.” See below.

Tomorrow, Radiohead are premiering two previously unreleased songs from the reissue, “Man Of War” and Lift,” on BBC Radio 6.
