One of those unreleased tracks, "Lift," has been around in some form or another for over two decades, and here gets a video directed by Oscar Hudson. Leave it to Radiohead, however, to take a straightforward joke — Thom Yorke rides a lift for the song "Lift" — and make it surreal.
The band has been visually prolific this year: "Lift" joins the videos it released for "Man of War" and "I Promise" (just ahead of a fabulous turn at Glastonbury) this past June, which were equally clever and cheeky.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
