Thom Yorke signs global admin deal with Kobalt

Kobalt Music has signed a worldwide administration deal with Thom Yorke to represent the Radiohead man's previous solo album, The Eraser, and his upcoming album with Atoms For Peace.

The Atoms For Peace debut, Amok, will be released on February 25 through XL Recordings. Yorke initially formed Atoms For Peace - with producer (and fellow Kobalt writer) Nigel Godrich, Flea (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco (also Kobalt writer) - as a live band to perform The Eraser.

"Atoms is a ongoing and open ended project, where it leads I know not for certain .... which is what is nice about it," says Yorke.

In November, Atoms for Peace released the preview single, Default. Live dates by the band are expected in 2013.

Yorke's solo album, The Eraser (XL), debuted in the Top 5 on both the UK and US album charts and has gone on to sell more than 500,000 units worldwide.          

"Thom is one of the most inspiring and creative musicians to come out of the UK. Aside from his outstanding achievements as part of Radiohead, he continues to push himself musically with his solo work and now with Atoms For Peace," said Kobalt executive VP Global Creative Sas Metcalfe.

Kobalt SVP Business Development Nick Robinson added: "Thom is so well-respected by artists across all genres worldwide and the amazing new Atoms For Peace album will only enhance that further. It's another landmark in an incredible catalogue and to have Thom as part of our roster is an absolute honour."
