Yorke features in the group alongside longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chili Pepper’s Flea as well as drummer Joey Waronker and percussionist Mauro Refosco.
Yorke said in a statement: “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.”
He added: “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.”
‘Default’ is available to buy digitally now, with a 12″ vinyl version to follow next month. A full album will follow next year and will be released on XL recordings.
