Fall Out Boy playing Chicago's Wrigley Field...sort of

Watch now: Thom Yorke takes a long, strange elevator ride in Radiohead's "Lift" video

Radiohead has premiered the video for their song "Lift," a previously unreleased track that was included in the band's 20th anniversary OK Computer reissue. You can watch the clip now on YouTube. Fittingly, the "Lift" video finds Thom Yorke taking a long elevator ride as he encounters a host of strange characters. It certainly fits with OK Computer's general sense of anxiety, paranoia and existential dread.
