Jonny Greenwood has another new project.

The Radiohead guitarist is teaming up with Israeli musician Dudu Tassa for an album titled Jarak Qaribak, due out June 9. According to a press release, the record will bring together “vocalists and musicians from throughout the Middle East for a very special album of cross-border collaborations.”

Greenwood describes the sound of Jarak Qaribak as “trying to imagine what Kraftwerk would have done if they’d been in Cairo in the 1970s.”

You can listen to single “Ashufak Shay,” which features Rashid Al Najjar, now via digital outlets.

Greenwood, meanwhile, is gearing up to launch a U.S. tour with The Smile, which also features his Radiohead bandmate Thom Yorke, in June.
