TV On The Radio‘s second single off their “supposed” new album, got a nifty video today that premiered exclusively on Myspace. The song is a quite one, perhaps a reflective moment given the loss of their bass player Gerrard Smith to lung cancer back in April 20th, 2011. They’ve told several media outlet’s that they have no idea when they will release a new album, but rest assured there is material coming.
This and future tracks are being released by Federal Prism after the band split from Interscope.
Lead singer Tunde Adebimpe had this to see about their new album.
“We’re sort of collecting material for a record, but right now we’re only thinking in terms of songs, smaller things we can put out regularly until an album seems possible. Which I love.”
“It’s not that you’re less precious about the process, but I like coming in and saying, ‘Let’s make a couple songs’, not feeling any sort of pressure to lock ourselves in a room,” he added. “It’s not that you’re less precious about the process, but I like coming in and saying, ‘Let’s make a couple songs’, not feeling any sort of pressure to lock ourselves in a room,” he added.
This is what he had to say regarding the bands relationship with Interscope
“We parted ways with them,” says Adebimpe. “To the best of my knowledge, they can ask about another record, but I don’t think we’re gonna do that. Um, yeah they did what they did. That’s as diplomatic as I can put that.”
Sounds like they are headed in a new direction and for that to happen they needed some breathing room. Take all the time you need because if “Million Miles” is indicative of what you guys have been laying down, this album is going to be amazing!
