Thom Yorke laces up his dancing shoes for yet another music video, in the form of Atoms For Peace’s “Ingenue”. However, unlike the video for “Lotus Flower”, Thom has a partner this go-around and together they pull off some pretty memorable moves.

“Ingenue” is off Atoms For Peace’s full-length debut, Amok, which is out now via XL Recordings. Read more at consequenceofsound.net

Those anxiously awaiting the upcoming Atoms for Peace album will now have something quite special to tide them over until the album’s Feb. 26 release date.

Yesterday, Radiohead/Atoms for Peace frontman Thom Yorke and longtime producer Nigel Godrich uploaded several previously unreleased Atoms for Peace songs to SoundCloud before quickly removing them minutes later.

Earlier today, however, Yorke and Godrich unveiled a new mix exclusively for Dazed & Confused in conjunction with the publication’s cover story on Yorke. The 25-minute compilation contains alternate or unreleased versions of songs from Radiohead’s King of Limbs album, Atoms of Peace tracks as well as some unreleased Yorke solo material.

The mix is available below.

Listen/Watch: New Single From Thom Yorke's Atoms for Peace:

Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich just dropped by Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio 1 show, where they premiered the new single from the Atoms for Peace project, “Judge Jury and Executioner”. It’s off their album Amok, which is out February 25 in the UK and February 26 in the U.S. via XL Recordings.

Atoms for Peace also features the Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ Flea, Joey Waronker, and percussionist Mauro Refosco. Talking with Lowe, Yorke and Godrich said that they don’t have any shows planned at the moment, but they’re considering a European tour. They hinted that members of the group will probably play Glastonbury in some capacity. But according to Yorke, the full band “won’t have got our shit together by then.”

As for that Radiohead stuff recorded at Jack White’s Third Man Studio, Yorke said it will be released eventually, “but I have to pick the kids up from school first.”

The single is available for purchase on iTunes starting at midnight UK time or offered as a free download for those who pre-order the album.

There’s also an accompanying visual for the track, with imagery by Tarik Barri– watch it below:
