Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has revealed further details about Thom Yorke's forthcoming 'Atoms For Peace' album.

Radiohead's frontman recently revealed that he was finishing an album with the star and producer Nigel Godrich. Flea said the trio started working on a record after they toured under the name last year.

"At the end of the tour we went into a studio for three days and just jammed – totally improvising," he told Rolling Stone. "Thom and Nigel [Godrich] have taken that stuff and done shit with it. I've heard little bits and pieces. I have no idea when it's going to come out. Not real soon though."

The bassist refused to be drawn on the sound of the album but he said he hoped he could tour again with Yorke soon.

"I kind of feel like it's not really my place to talk about that stuff, the mystery should be the mystery," he added. "I just have a warm place in my heart and my mind and my balls for the whole fucking concept."
