Thom Yorke has announced details of the new album by his project, Atoms For Peace. The album will be called “Amok” and group members include Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, producer Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco.
The album is scheduled to be released on Feb. 25, according to the Radiohead website, where Yorke also hinted at a possible tour by Atoms For Peace next year.
“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,” Yorke wrote on the website. “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.”
Yorke and Radiohead last played in Denver at the 1stBank Center earlier this year as part of a world tour in support of the band’s most recent album, “King of Limbs.”
As with any project that involves Yorke, Atoms For Peace sounds quite a bit like Radiohead (which is by no means a bad thing). The track above has the angelic vocals and mathematical, experimental beats of Radiohead, but maybe Flea and co. to bring something a bit more unexpected to the album. Here’s the track list for the upcoming “Amok:”
