Radiohead Share Official Recording of Fan-Favourite "Follow Me Around"
The beloved, elusive song made its live debut 21 years ago in Toronto
Published Nov 01, 2021Radiohead have shared an official recording of "Follow Me Around," a near-mythic, fan-beloved track that the band has been performing live for years.
The song first appeared in the 1998 documentary Meeting People is Easy — which followed the band's struggles after the success of 1997's seminal OK Computer — before having its live debut at a Toronto concert in the fall of 2000.
It's a pretty straightforward, guitar-centric song that doesn't necessarily fit with what Radiohead were doing in the early 2000s, so it makes sense that the band put it on the back burner for a while.
But now it's here! And it comes attached to a lo-fi video featuring actor Guy Pearce as he's pursued by an invasive, jittery camera. You can check it out below.
The long-awaited song features on the third disc of Radiohead's upcoming KID A MNESIA, which gathers outtakes and alternate versions from the band's classic sister records. The album includes the previously-released single "If You Say the Word" and it arrives November 5 on XL.
