Albums Of The Week: Radiohead | Kid A Mnesia

The British art-rockers' game-changing fourth studio album — and its less-impressive followup — are joined by a dozen equally experimental outtakes for this compilation.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE:Radiohead’s Kid A Mnesia is a triple-album release marking the 21st anniversary of Kid A and Amnesiac.

Kid A Mnesia collects Radiohead’s fourth and fifth albums alongside the debut of a newly compiled third disc titled Kid Amnesiae. Exclusive to this release, Kid Amnesiae is comprised of unearthed material culled from the Kid A / Amnesiac sessions. Along with alternate versions and elements of Kid A and Amnesiac album tracks and B-sides, Kid Amnesiae features the never-before-heard If You Say the Word and a previously unreleased studio recording of Follow Me Around.

“We humbly submit Kid A Mnesia to you,” the band wrote.⁠⁠ “It’s a coming of age for Kid A & Amnesiac and it’s joined by a new album, Kid Amnesiae, a memory palace of half-remembered, half-forgotten sessions & unreleased material⁠⁠.”
