RADIOHEAD – Previously Unreleased ‘OK COMPUTER’ Ballad ‘I PROMISE’ Is A Heartbreaking Beauty…

‘I Promise’ by RADIOHEAD

RADIOHEAD have shared the studio version of a song titled I PROMISE. It’s one of the
three previously unreleased tracks from the OK Computer sessions that will be on the upcoming reissue called OKNOTOK to celebrate the 20th birthday of that outstanding magnum opus. All details here. The track is really a mesmeric pearl, a gripping ballad,
a touching beauty with softly marching drums, tenderly acoustic guitar, emotionally orchestral arrangements, an intensely captivating melody and Thom Yorke‘s vulnerable
and heart-rending voice. A truly epic beauty about regret, hope, sorrow and profound love. The accompanying video is a masterpiece too. I wept when I saw the clip the first time and couldn’t but think about all the innocent victims, hurt families and friends of those awful, recent tragedies in Manchester and London

I won’t run away no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when you lock me out, I promise
I say my prayers every night, I promise

I don’t wish that I’m strict, I promise
The tantrums and the chilling chats, I promise
Even when the ship is wrecked, I promise
Tie me to the rotten deck, I promise

I won’t run away no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when the ship is wrecked, I promise
Tie me to the rotten deck, I promise

I won’t fool around no more, I promise
Even when I get bored, I promise
Even when you lock me out, I promise
I say my prayers every night, I promise
I won’t fool around no more, I promise

I won’t run away no more, I promise
