The sudden arrival of mysterious posters in cities around the world has prompted speculation that Radiohead is planning some sort of celebration for the 20th anniversary of its landmark 1997 album, OK Computer. According to Diffuser, the posters seem to reference lyrics from the album track "Fitter Happier," and bear a resemblance to the concept art the band was using at that time. The years 1997-2017 also appear on the posters.
- It’s unclear who is behind the posters, which have already been seen in London, Berlin, Amsterdam, Vancouver, Los Angeles and New York, with other places sure to be added but yet to be reported.
- Fans online are speculating whether the group may be planning a deluxe reissue of the album, bringing out previously unreleased tracks or giving full performances of the set in concert.
- OK Computer was released on May 21st, 1997 and remains Radiohead's most popular and acclaimed effort with both fans and critics. It included the hit "Karma Police."
- Regular Radiohead cover artist Stanley Donwood recently teased on Instagram an upcoming project with the band that he wrote was "soon to be real," but has since posted only images of scaffolding and no further details.
- Radiohead recently concluded a North American tour in support of its latest studio set, A Moon Shaped Pool.
