Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich air unheard track 'Honey Pot' on American radio station - listen
Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich shared unheard song 'Honey Pot' in a DJ set broadcast earlier today on American radio station KCRW. You can listen to the track on Soundcloud by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking play.

The pair, who are currently out in America promoting Atoms For Peace's first full-length record, AMOK, also played music by Charles Mingus, Joe Jackson, James Holden and Beastie Boys as they joined the Morning Becomes Eclectic show. Introducing their takeover, Yorke described their set as having a "slow and peculiar start".

As 'Honey Pot' began, Yorke asked his co-host "I'm not supposed to say what it is, right?" Godrich replied: "Well no, I'm just saying don't talk over it." As the song came to a close, Yorke then revealed "This is a remix of ['In Rainbows' track] 'All I Need' that turned into a new song that we didn’t know what to do with."

Discussing some of their choices, Yorke said Holden was "a bit of an idol of mine" and revealed they were hoping to get the electronic musician to support them at the Hollywood Bowl date of Atoms For Peace’s US tour in October.

The duo also discussed how DJing affects how they think about music. Godrich explained: "It definitely changes the way you listen to music, I think, when you start thinking about the way people listen to music and what you like, why you would play something. If you had a gun at your head, what is the tune you would play to get out of this situation."

You can listen to the whole hour takeover on KCRW's website. Atoms For Peace play a number of dates across Europe and the US this year, including three at London’s Roundhouse (July 24, 25 and 26).
