Radiohead's Thom Yorke speaks about new Atoms For Peace track

Thom Yorke has spoken about his Atoms For Peace project, following the release of their debut single 'Default' yesterday, which you can listen to below.

Yorke features in the group alongside longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chili Pepper's Flea as well as drummer Joey Waronker and percussionist Mauro Refosco.

Yorke said in a statement: "You may have heard that I have a new project called Atoms for Peace. The name comes from some shows of The Eraser that happened a couple of years ago with Mauro, Joey, Nigel and Flea."

He added: "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. Immersed in the area between the two… electronic and live."

'Default' is available to buy digitally now, with a 12" vinyl version to follow next month. A full album will follow next year and will be released on XL recordings.
