As Radiohead take some time off from their world tour, it looks more and more like they’re going to do something special in honor of the 20th anniversary of OK Computer. This morning, they dropped a hint, the first to officially come from them.

The band posted the below video to their Instagram feed. It features a child’s voice reading what sounds like alternate lyrics to the first verse and chorus of “Climbing Up the Walls” and very retro computer graphics. Midway through, the words “Program: radiohead” appear at the top and, shortly thereafter, “0 OK, 0:1″ turn up at the bottom. Take a look below.

Last Tuesday, we reported that signs started showing up in major world cities with the lyrics to “Fitter Happier” and the words “1997-2017″ underneath. But it has yet to be revealed who paid for the posters. Apart from a cryptic Instagram post of scaffolding by Stanley Donwood, the man responsible for all of their album and poster artwork since 1994, there has been no word coming from the band or their inner circle. OK Computer turns 20 on May 21 of this year.

Radiohead started their tour in Miami at the end of March and wrapped it up at Coachella, where their headlining slot on the first weekend resulted in them leaving the stage twice due to technical problems. They’ll spend June and the first week of July touring Europe, a stretch that includes a stop at the Glastonbury Festival on June 23. You can see all the dates here.
