Radiohead's Lost Track

Radiohead's masterpiece OK Computer was originally supposed to contain the song ‘Nude.’ Recent news has surfaced that the band is looking to add this lost gem to their upcoming album, which is expected to be released later in the year.

The song, also known as ‘Big Ideas’, has proven to be challenging, since it has taken Radiohead nearly ten years to get it right.

Frontman Thom Yorke comments on the track:

Writing online, he said: "Jonny (Greenwood) is hastily writing out scores for a string quartet who are coming tommorow. Right now we are working on 'Nude', it sounds beautiful, as far as I can tell."

For those interested, an early version of the song is to be found on Radiohead’s documentary 'Meeting People Is Easy'.

After some research, I haven't found any evidence of new album leaks. However, you may have heard some of their unreleased material from 1990. For more information, check out www.spin.com/features/news/2006/01/060103_radiohead/
