Radiohead Announce ‘Kid A’ and ‘Amnesiac’ Reissue With New Music
Radiohead have announced a combined reissue of 2000's Kid A and 2001's Amnesiac. The multiple format triple-album, titled KID A MNESIA is slated for Nov. 5.
KID A MNESIA, which the band has hinted at over the summer, includes remastered editions of the two albums, as well as a third disc, Kid Amnesiae, which features "alternate versions and elements" of Kid A and Amnesiac album tracks and B-sides, along with an unheard studio recording of "Follow Me Around.” You can view the bonus disc track listing below.
There are several editions of the set scheduled for release, including a deluxe three-LP collection pressed on half-speed mastered cream vinyl with a 36-page hardback art book. Another edition is Kid Amnesiette, a limited and numbered edition double cassette that also includes B-sides, plus the 36-page supplement in booklet form.
There will also be red and black vinyl editions, as well as a traditional three-CD and digital versions.
You can hear the previously unreleased song "If You Say the Word" below.
A day before the reissue's release, two art books by Stanley Donwood and Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke will be published that "catalog the visual works created during the Kid A / Amnesiac era."
The KID A MNESIA Art Book is a 300-page "celebration" of the process and artwork created for Kid A and Amnesiac, while Fear Stalks the Land! is a black-and-white paperback collection of Yorke and Donwood’s notes, lyrics and sketches.
