Last week the Radiohead singer revealed to BBC Radio 1 that the debut album from his supergroup Atoms For Peace is almost finished.

The group includes longtime Radiohead produced Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea.

While Yorke sounded excited by the work he and Godrich have been putting into it recently, Flea has just revealed to Rolling Stone that he doesn’t think it’s happening too soon.

He said, “At the end of the tour we went into a studio for three days and just jammed – totally improvising. Thom and Nigel 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.”

Flea also spoke about the difference between the public’s perception of him and Yorke.

He revealed, “Especially when we were playing together. People would go, ‘Thom is so cerebral and Flea is just an animal.’ But Thom is the type of musician who doesn’t think at all. He goes totally on feeling and intuition. Whereas I’m like, ‘You can try a G7 chord with a diminished fifth, that might be proper.’

“My point is that he’s such a beautiful, natural and exciting musician. Also, his relationship with Nigel is so cool, Nigel being this organizational, producery-type guy. They’re going to have something incredible. I have complete faith in them.”
