Thom Yorke announces debut album plans for supergroup, stream new track 'Default'
Words Max Goldbart
Thom Yorke has announced details of his debut album with supergroup side-project Atoms For Peace in a statement appearing on Radiohead’s website, along with a taster single which can be heard below.
The as-yet untitled album is set for release in 2013 on XL Recordings, and will be preceded by the release of single ‘Default’ on vinyl next month. Alongside Yorke, contributors include producer Nigel Goldrich, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Mauro Refusco and Joey Waronker.
Yorke’s statement read: “The [Atoms For Peace] name comes from some shows of The Eraser that happened a couple of years ago with Mauro, Joey, Nigel and Flea. We got a big buzz from them and discovered loads of energy from transforming the music from electronic to live, and so afterwards, we carried on for a few days in the studio and decided to make it a loose, on-going thing.”
