Rock fans only have to wait a few more months for the new album issued by Atoms for Peace, the collaborative project by Radiohead's Thom Yorke and Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, to arrive. Yorke announced on his blog today that "AMOK" will be out Feb. 25. He also shared the track list and the album's graphic black-and-white art.

Atoms formed to play tracks from Yorke's 2006 record, The Eraser, but soon formed into something bigger. On his blog, Yorke writes that the group "discovered a really good energy doing that.. and it fell into this record."  He describes the project as "ongoing and open ended," which means that fans will continue to speculate/hope for more collaborations in the future.
