Supergroup's new single will be released on September 10
Yorke features in the group alongside longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chili Pepper’s Flea as well as drummer Joey Waronker and percussionist Mauro Refosco.
‘Default’ is out on September 10 and follows the band’s earlier release in August – a set of remixes released on Modeselektor’s label Monkeytown. It included a remix of one of the band’s own tracks ‘Other Side – Stuck Together’, which was the B-side to the band’s single, ‘Tamer Animals’, a remix of a track by Other Lives – who have supported Radiohead on tour.
Thom Yorke and producer Nigel Godrich debuted new Atoms For Peace songs during their DJ set at an LA club earlier this year. The pair played the new songs during their set at Transmission LA: AV Club, a free 17-day music and visual arts festival series at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, curated by the Beastie Boys‘ Mike D.
The tracks are believed to be from the group’s forthcoming debut LP, which is rumoured to be released in 2012 – although no official confirmation has been issued.
