Thom Yorke: ‘Part’ of Atoms for Peace May Play Glastonbury 2013
The 2013 music festival rumor mill continues to heat up, with Radiohead singer Thom Yorke revealing potential plans to appear at this summer’s edition of the U.K.’s popular Glastonbury festival. Some news outlets have interpreted Yorke’s comments — which came when he and Nigel Godrich, one of his bandmates in the supergroup Atoms for Peace, sat for a talk with BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe — as evidence that Radiohead may take the stage at this year’s gathering, set for June 27-30.
But Yorke was actually talking about Atoms for Peace’s possible Glastonbury plans, not Radiohead’s, and he insists Atoms “won’t have [their] s— together in time” for this year’s festival. But he doesn’t rule out some sort of appearance. “Not as the whole unit, but maybe some sort of broken part of the unit,” he tells Lowe. “We’ve got to get in for free somehow. We are going to Glastonbury, so we’ve got to do something.”
Atoms for Peace release their debut album, ‘AMOK,’ on Feb. 25.
