Thom Yorke's late partner passed away on December 18th...
'OKNOTOK'

Radiohead have dedicated 'OKNOTOK' to "the memory of Dr. Rachel Owen".

The album brings together 'OK Computer' and its offcuts for a 20th anniversary celebration, with the material seeming to be more relevant than ever.

Thom Yorke's partner Dr. Rachel Owen passed away on December 18th last year, following a battle with cancer - they had been together for more than 23 years, and had two children together.

A renowned academic, the band pay their respects on the vinyl edition of 'OKNOTOK' - as NME points out.

The dedication reads: "This re-issue is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Rachel Owen (1968-2016) who died after a long and brave battle with cancer. We hope you are OK. Thank you for listening."
