Atoms For Peace’s debut record had been previously reported as due for release on January 28, 2013. Now according to Pitchfork, it would seem that although the debut album from the super group is still expected early next year, the exact date remains unconfirmed.
Atoms For Peace is made up of Joey Waronker, Nigel Godrich, Flea, recently confirmed permanent member Mauro Refosco and Thom Yorke. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Yorke talked about the creative process of building material for Atoms For Peace.
When asked what role he played when working alongside Red Hot Chili Pepper bassist Flea, Yorke said he was a ‘conductor’ before reminiscing about when Atoms For Peace first started working together.
“When we first hung out, we were at Flea’s house. We got wasted, played pool and listened to Fela Kuti all night. It was that idea of trance-ing out,” Yorke told Rolling Stone.
As for the overall sound of Atoms For Peace, Yorke expressed to Rolling Stone that “one of the things we were most excited about was ending up with a record where you weren’t quite sure where the human starts and the machine ends.”
