There have been a lot of whispers and rumours about Thom Yorke’s Atoms for Peace project since the band formed in 2009 to play The Eraser live. In the new issue of Dazed & Confused, the fabled frontman clears up the speculation surrounding Amok, his first group album outside of Radiohead, with one of his most in-depth interviews to date. He also talks frankly about his life and work, discussing his uneasy relationship with fame, that video for “Lotus Flower” and why he’s still intent on bending people’s heads of out shape.
Also, stay tuned to Dazed Digital over the next fortnight, as we’ll be enrolling 14 of today’s most innovative producers, including Actress, Machinedrum, Flying Lotus and Arca, into “The University of Yorke”. They’ll be asking Thom a series of burning questions, plus much, much more.
Until then, we thought we’d get you in the mood by asking the man himself to make us an, ahem, A-Thomic mix of some of his favourite tunes. Little did we realise that he would go into the studio with Nigel Godrich and emerge with 25 minutes of unreleased solo material and remixes. Suffice to say, it’s essential listening. Check below for the tracklisting, and make sure you pick up the issue, which hits the shelves today.
