Radiohead Share Creepy New Video For “Man Of War”
We’re one day away from Radiohead’s 20th-anniversary reissue of OK Computer titled OKNOTOK. To get everyone even more excited, the band just dropped a new video for “Man Of War.”
The video juxtaposes scenes of a man walking the street at night and during the day. The daytime version is friendly and carefree while the nighttime version is scared and paranoid. Both scenes parallel each other, though, when a group of people start following, then chasing him. “So unplug the phones, stop all the taps/ It all comes flooding back/ To poison clouds and poisoned dwarves,” frontman, Thom Yorke, sings in the background.
“Man Of War” was originally written back in the 90’s when The Bends was released. The band wasn't satisfied with its recording, though, until now. The track is one of three previously unreleased songs fans will hear on OKNOTOK. The band put out another, “I Promise,” at the beginning of the month, which you can listen to here. The third is titled “Lift,” which you can finally listen to in less than 24 hours.
