Thom Yorke, Nigel Godrich Release “Amok” Stream In Reddit AmA Session
Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich, contributing members of English rock acts Radiohead (and as far as today’s news goes), Atoms for Peace, thrilled fans today with some breaking news, including a new streaming link to their latest work.
Craftily engaging many music fans who were relaxing at home on Presidents Day, the duo hosted an “Ask Me Anything” session on Reddit today around noon eastern time. Within the thread, Yorke and Godrich answered questions regarding their latest collaboration (as Radiohead) with Jack White and the release of the second Atoms for Peace album, Amok.
While Amok is scheduled for a February 26th release, Yorke and Godrich happily offered up a free-streaming link to the album when a participating Reddit user inquired about the album’s inevitable leak. The pair also confirmed that the group would be supporting the album with tour stops in the United States.
The official tour notwithstanding, Yorke and Godrich have confirmed they will be visiting locales in London on February 22nd, Berlin on March 8th and New York on March 14th, armed only with two turntables and a microphone.
Information is still forthcoming, with special guests and venues to come.
It is presumed that Atoms for Peace will wrap up the Amok tour in late Summer to begin recordings on the next Radiohead album in September, as Radiohead guitarist Johnny Greenwood has already confirmed.
Also worth noting: fan inquiries regarding a visit to Jack White’s Third Man Studios in Nashville, Tennessee abound, Yorke and Godrich confirmed two unfinished tracks had grown from their recording session in Nashville, including one track entitled “Identikit.” That said, Jack White himself stated in an interview with the BBC that he did not participate in the production or performance of these songs.
