Flea elaborates on the new album from Atoms For Peace
While many people are still freaking out over Radiohead coming to New York City and becoming the hottest ticket of the year for two nights, the Thom Yorke side project, Atoms For Peace, is continuing to bubble up slowly.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Red Hot Chili Peppers/Atoms For Peace bassist Flea said that the album came about after the group finished their brief tour. “We went into a studio for three days and just jammed – totally improvising,” Flea said. “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.”
He won’t really talk about what the album sounds like, however, saying “I kinda feel like it’s not really my place to talk about that stuff. The mystery should be the mystery.”
But he does have a deep feeling that Atoms will tour again. “I hope that happens. I just have a warm place in my heart and my mind and my balls for the whole fucking concept.”
