Epic and Radiohead – An unexpected collaboration

As of now, very little is known about this collaboration. According to Sony (as spotted by IGN), Kid A Mnesia Exhibition will be “an upside-down digital/analog universe created from original artwork and recordings to commemorate 21 years of Radiohead’s Kid A and Amnesiac.” 

On September 7th, Radiohead wrote on Twitter that this exhibition will be “a coming of age for Kid A & Amnesiac and it’s joined by a new album, Kid Amnesiae, a memory palace of half-remembered, half-forgotten sessions & unreleased material.”

This announcement also came as a rather off-beat update from the latest PlayStation Showcase on September 9.

Kid A and Amnesiac as cult favorites

Radiohead, with Kid A, experimented with electronic music and expressed several emotions with that album. The album was able to capture several anxieties surrounding people. It was a reflection of panic caused by elements such as climate change, atomic weapons, and human nature. And Amnesiac worked as an offspring to Kid A when it came out in 2011.

While it garnered mixed reviews at the start, fans slowly have realized that these two albums contain a few of Radiohead’s best songs. All of these explain the cult status Radiohead acquired in the coming years.
