Radiohead release their hacked 'OK Computer' sessions

Earlier this week it was announced that a hacker had gotten their hands on Thom Yorke's unfinished minidisc recordings of 'OK Computer', claiming they wanted $150,000 or the archive would be released. But rather than give into their demands, Radiohead have now announced that they will just release them anyway.

Named as 'MINIDISCS [HACKED]', the 18-track collection has now been made available on Bandcamp for £18 for the next 18 days, with all proceeds from the sale going to Extinction Rebellion.

You can find the release of hacked tapes on Bandcamp here and read the band's Jonny Greenwood's full statement on the matter below.
