LOOK: Thom Yorke Sends The World A Note; Atoms For Peace Album Announcement
By Staff on December 4, 2012
When you open up your email and see the subject line "A note from Thom Yorke...", your heart skips a beat in that same way that you got when Barack Obama would email you " Dinner?" during the campaign. While those emails from Barry always ended in a tinge of disappointment, Yorke's note is nothing less than exciting and infuriating at the same time.
It's exciting because he sent us (and the rest of the world) an email announcing the impending release of Atoms for Peace's full-length debut album Amok. It's infuriating because Amok is set for release on February 26, 2013 via XL Recordings...and that is just too far!
Well instead of hearing us talk about the impending take over of Yorke's side project with the likes of Flea and others, we'll just let you see what Yorke sent us:
"The tracks are
Before Your Very Eyes
Stuck Together Pieces
Judge Jury and Executioner
We put something new on the website for you to stare at etc for a while here...
It's a while to wait i know so i'm sure some other things will occur before then.
Atoms for Peace... members of staff
Me Vocals Keyboards Programming and Guitars
Nigel Godrich Production & Programming
Joey Waronker Drums
Mauro Refosco Percussion
We formed to learn to play The Eraser record, if you don't know that, and discovered a really good energy doing that... and it fell into this record.
I'm still reeling from being on tour for much of the year but we are planning to get together and play etc next year ! We're figuring all that out right now.
Atoms is a ongoing and open ended project, where it leads i know not for certain... which is what is nice about it."
Well said, Mr. Yorke.
