Today was a big day for Atoms For Peace as they debuted their first ever studio recording, “Default.” Listen to the new track below.
Watch the new single, “Default”
Thom Yorke, commandeer of this project band and Radiohead’s frontman, released the following statement on Radiohead’s website:
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.
As mentioned by Yorke, the band will be releasing their first album in 2013. Atoms For Peace has Yorke as the lead vocalist, Nigel Godrich on production and programming, Joey Waronker on drums, percussionist Mauro Refosco, and Flea on bass. “Default” is now available for download via iTunes and can be streamed on the band’s official website.
