Thom Yorke has pointed to a new Atoms for Peace song titled "Magic Beanz" floating around the Internet: "The Z is v important," the frontman wrote on Twitter. "I'd find u a link but I'm still in bedzzz."

You can take a listen to the track above, which begins with just a dull synth line that soon finds itself weaving around scattershot drums, Yorke's soft, chopped vocals, an array of ambient drones and, by the end, the distant noodling of acoustic guitar.

No word if "Magic Beanz" is simply a b-side or outtake from Atoms for Peace's debut record Amok, or if it will ever see release as such. Atoms for Peace kick off a European summer tour this July, with a handful of Stateside dates set to begin September 24th at Philadelphia's Liacouras Center.
