I just gazed down at the calendar to check the date and it's bloody November. NOVEMBER! I need some kind of mechanism to stop time intermittently to get things done. It'll be new years eve before I know it. With that being said, November means that Thom Yorke's other project Atoms For Peace are close to releasing their single "Default", November 19th to be precise. With the single comes this dance inducing B-Side called "What The Eyeballs Did".
"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. 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. The first tune we'd like you hear is Default. A 12" vinyl version will follow next month and an album will eventually follow that next year."
Along with the annoncement of an album set for 2013 a track titled "Default" has been previewed from the album. Listen to it below.
During an interview last night on Gilles Peterson’s show on BBC Radio 1, Thom Yorke made a lot of Radiohead fans very, very happy. Having played a surprise set at Glastonbury this year many fans were left wanting more and it seems like those fans may have had their wish granted by the man with all the dance moves. Thom revealed that Radiohead will be touring in 2012 after figuring out how to actually play KoL live stating:
"The idea is to go out and play next year on and off during the year."
Additionally, Thom spoke about his his side-project Atoms For Peace which is made up of Flea, Nigel Godirch, Joey Waronker, and Mauro Refosco, and says the band have recorded an album and it's on the way. It's just being finished up by Godrich at the moment.
