Last month, we got word that Atoms for Peace -- a collaboration between Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and others -- were about to unveil their debut album. Now, Yorke has confirmed that the disc, entitled Amok, will hit shelves on February 26.

On Radiohead's website, Yorke wrote a post where he showed off the album's cover, confirmed the track list, listed the band members and gave a sense of what Atoms for Peace's 2013 might look like. "I'm still reeling from being on tour for much of the year but we are planning to get together and play etc next year !" he wrote. "We're figuring all that out right now."

Atoms came out of Yorke wanting to tour to support his 2006 solo record The Eraser, but that has led to them working on new music together and this forthcoming album. As far as long-term plans, though, Yorke wouldn't reveal much. "Atoms is a ongoing and open ended project," he said in the post, "where it leads i know not for certain .... which is what is nice about it."
