The band has shared their first ever video on TikTok, containing some sinister details and imagery.
Featuring a creepy news broadcast from Chieftain Mews, soundtracked by ‘Paranoid Android’, previously seen in old Radiohead webcasts — and resurrected for an OKNOTOK unboxing in 2017 — the character, played by longtime producer Nigel Godrich, sits behind a newsreader’s desk in front of the Radiohead logo.
Over a snippet of OK Computer’s “Paranoid Android”, Mews asks an off-camera figure, “Well, what do you want me to say? TikTok. Tick, tock, tick, tock, tick, tock.” Shifting his attention to the viewer, he then adds in a deadpan voice: “This is your wakeup call. Have a good day.”
