Flea Comments On Thom Yorke & 'Atoms For Peace' Album
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has commented on when the 'Atoms For Peace' debut album may be released.
Atoms For Peace; which features Flea along with Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, Nigel Godrich [Radiohead producer] on guitar / keyboards and Joey Waronker [REM / Smashing Pumpkins] on drums, started work on album last year.
Talking about the recording Flea told Rolling Stone "Thom and Nigel [Godrich] have taken that stuff and done shit with it. I've heard little bits and pieces. I have no idea when it's going to come out. Not real soon though."
When asked his thoughts about Yorke Flea explained "People always think about him and talk about as this really cerebral artist, especially when we were playing together. People would go, 'Thom is so cerebral and Flea is just an animal.' But Thom is the type of musician who doesn't think at all. He goes totally on feeling and intuition. Whereas I'm like, 'You can try a G7 chord with a diminished fifth, that might be proper.' My point is that he's such a beautiful, natural and exciting musician. Also, his relationship with Nigel is so cool, Nigel being this organizational, producery-type guy. They're going to have something incredible. I have complete faith in them."
