Thom Yorke

Music publishing firm Kobalt has announced a worldwide administration deal with Thom Yorke to represent his copyrights in the 2006 solo album ‘The Eraser’ and songs by the Radiohead frontman’s current side-project, supergroup Atoms For Peace.

Regular Radiohead and Yorke producer, and Atoms For Peace member, Nigel Godrich, is already represented by Kobalt, as is Radiohead drummer Philip Selway for his solo output.

Confirming the new deal, Kobalt’s VP Global Creative Sas Metcalfe told CMU: “Thom is one of the most inspiring and creative musicians to come out of the UK. Aside from his outstanding achievements as part of Radiohead, he continues to push himself musically with his solo work and now with Atoms For Peace”.

The publisher’s SVP Business Development Nick Robinson added: “Thom is so well-respected by artists across all genres worldwide and the amazing new Atoms For Peace album will only enhance that further. It’s another landmark in an incredible catalogue and to have Thom as part of our roster is an absolute honour”.
