Atoms for Peace vs. Spotify


Atoms For Peace

Atoms For Peace

Thom Yorke is at it again! The cryptic mastermind behind Radiohead has had a row with the streaming service Spotify and removed the music of his newest project, Atoms for Peace, from Spotify. Atoms for Peace is an experimental rock supergroup consisting of Yorke, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, frequent Radiohead producer and collaborator Nigel Godrich, percussionist Mario Refosco, and drummer of R.E.M. and Beck Joey Waronker.

The band’s first full length came out last February, and was soon after put up on Spotify to be available for free streaming. On July 15, Godrich revealed his opinion through several Twitter posts, stating that Spotify was just a new way for greedy music industry bigwigs to gain control over new music. His biggest dispute was the relatively low pay that smaller musicians get over Spotify, which has long been a point of contention between artists and the popular streaming service.

After Godrich tweeted his opinions, Thom Yorke retweeted and added some of his own thoughts on the matter. In Yorke’s opinion, the Spotify pay model is not enough for artists without an already established back catalogue. Yorke, along with many others, believe the minimal amount of money artists make using Spotify will directly translate intoa lowering of the quality of music.

Despite receiving a fair amount of resistance, both Godrich and Yorke stand behind their original statements. As of this moment, not only has Atoms for Peace’s album been removed, but Ultraista, the self-titled debut from Godrich and Waronker’s other band, and The Eraser, Yorke’s solo album have also been pulled from Spotify. While the removal of these three albums certainly brings into the spotlight a major issue facing Spotify and the music industry, Spotify users and artists will have to wait to see if any actual changes are made in response to this bold move.
