Thom Yorke names Atoms For Peace LP, shares tracklisting

Releases

Thom Yorke

That Thom Yorke has officially unveiled ‘Amok’, the first LP by his, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, Mauro Refosco and part-time RHCP bassist Flea’s collaborative sideline Atoms For Peace. Comprising nine tracks, most of which were first conceived when the band toured in 2010, it’s set for tentative release via XL Recordings in early 2013.

“It’s something that hasn’t been done before, because of its origins. It was sort of a backward idea – and a step into the unknown”, says Godrich of the record, which combines live in-studio sessions with his and Yorke’s latter laptop compositions.

Yorke adds: “One of the things we were most excited about was ending up with a record where you weren’t quite sure where the human starts and the machine ends”.

The above quotes feature as part of a Rolling Stone interview, as does this ‘Amok’ tracklisting:

Before Your Very Eyes…
Default
Ingenue
Dropped
Unless
Stuck Together Pieces
Judge, Jury and Executioner
Reverse Running
Amok
