NPR Runs Amok
In recent years, Thom Yorke has divided his time between Radiohead and a solo career. But after touring as a solo act with the assistance of some of his favorite collaborators — including Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich — Yorke's side project has now morphed into another band, Atoms for Peace, named for both a 1953 quote from Dwight Eisenhower and a song title from Yorke's 2006 solo album The Eraser.
Amok is Atoms for Peace's first official album and will be released February 26, 2013.
NPR is streaming the entire album as a whole and individual tracks HERE
