Thom Yorke Wishes to Inform You About Atoms for Peace

Posted by on Tue, Dec 4, 2012 at 10:32 AM

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke has a special message about his new project, Atoms for Peace. (The one track I've heard by Atoms for Peace [see video after the cut] sounds like remedial Autechre.)

So finally I can tell you the Atoms for Peace record is coming out on the 25th February [on XL Recordings; Feb. 26 in the US], it's called Amok.

The front will look like theez..

The tracks are
Before Your Very Eyes
Stuck Together Pieces
Judge Jury and Executioner
Reverse Running

Atoms for Peace... members of staff
Me Vocals Keyboards Programming and Guitars
Nigel Godrich Production & Programming
Joey Waronker Drums
Mauro Refosco Percussion
Flea Bass

We formed to learn to play The Eraser record, if you don't know that, and discovered a really good energy doing that... and it fell into this record.

I'm still reeling from being on tour for much of the year but we are planning to get together and play etc next year ! We're figuring all that out right now.

Atoms is a ongoing [sic] and open ended project, where it leads i know not for certain... which is what is nice about it."

I can only assume you think Kid A and Amnesiac sound like remedial Autechre too? Cuz that's what this sounds like to me.
