The highly anticipated album by supergroup Atoms For Peace is out. Amok is the debut album for the group, which includes Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, drummer Joey Waronker (Beck and R.E.M.) and percussionist Mauro Refosco.
The group release the single, “Default“, back in September.
Atoms For Peace was formed in 2009 out of shows done for Yorke’s 2006 solo project, The Eraser. After the tour ended in 2010, the group spent three days in a Los Angeles studio, jamming and recording. The project was edited and arranged by Yorke and Godrich over the next two years.
In a 2011 interview with Rolling Stone, Flea said the album was mostly improvised.
“At the end of the tour we went into a studio for three days and just jammed – totally improvising,” he said.
