It seems Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich had a bit of good fun yesterday online. Initially, Godrich Tweeted about new Atoms for Peace material being released. He then wrote that “We’ve decided not to put any tunes on Soundcloud”, while confusingly including a Soundcloud link to a song, ‘Time Was Dropped’, which was deleted 20 minutes later. A page later appeared hosting a new song called ‘Who Let Them In’, along with the accompanying text “We said no baked beans”.
Then today, Yorke dropped a rare mix of unreleased songs for Dazed & Confused. As stated on their website, “We thought we’d get you in the mood by asking Mr Yorke himself to make us an, ahem, A-Thomic mix of some of his favourite tunes. Little did we realise that he would go into the studio with Nigel Godrich and emerge with 25 minutes of unreleased solo material and remixes. Suffice to say, it’s essential listening.” Complete with Yorke solo material, as well as Radiohead and Liars reworks, it’s sure to be 25 minutes of worthwhile listening.
Atoms For Peace’s debut album is up for preorder and will be released on February 26.
