I Promise

Ahead of their Glastonbury headline set, Radiohead release long-lost track I Promise from the 20th-anniversary box set of OK Computer. “I Promise,” like “Lift,” dates to Radiohead’s tour supporting Alanis Morissette in 1996, and it was played several times that year. Curiously, Thom Yorke has reportedly likened “I Promise” to Joy Division, but extant live recordings reveal a regretful acoustic strummer akin to R.E.M. at their most tender, with marching drums and majestic mellotron-like washes of orchestral tones.
