Thom Yorke debuts new Atoms For Peace songs

Radiohead's Thom Yorke and producer Nigel Godrich debuted new songs from their Atoms For Peace supergroup during their DJ set at an LA club on Friday [April 27].

The duo, who play in the band alongside Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco, played the new songs during their set at Transmission LA: AV Club, a free 17-day music and visual arts festival series at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, curated by the Beastie Boys’ Mike D.

The new songs may be from the group's forthcoming debut LP, which is rumoured to be released in 2012 – although no official confirmation as been issued.

Last year, Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea revealed details of an album and said they started working on a record after touring together under the Atoms For Peace name.

"At the end of the tour we went into a studio for three days and just jammed – totally improvising," he told Rolling Stone. "Thom and Nigel [Godrich] have taken that stuff and done shit with it. I've heard little bits and pieces. I have no idea when it's going to come out. Not real soon though."
