Vocalist Tunde Adebimpe commented on the upcoming album: “We’ve been through a lot of stuff in the past few years that could have stopped the band cold, but I’m glad we got it together and took stock of the unique connection we have between each other because the record is, 1000 percent, without a doubt, the best thing we’ve ever done."
This is the first release from the band since 2011’s Nine Types of Light, their fourth studio album and third for Interscope. The critically praised album was nominated for a Grammy in the Best Long Form Video category. The release was accompanied by an hourlong film containing music videos for all 10 songs on the album, as well as interviews with various New Yorkers, helmed by a variety of different directors under the supervision of Adebimpe.
The band’s 2008 album, Dear Science, was voted #1 by fans in the Pitchfork Rader’s Poll and #1 album in the Village Voice’s Pazz and Jop Poll of that year, with the band appearing on Saturday Night Live and The Colbert Report. Their earlier efforts, 2004’s Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes and 2006’s Return to Cookie Mountain, earned nods for the Shortlist Music Prize and Spin Album of the Year, respectively.
The band released two tracks, “Mercy” and “Million Miles,” on guitarist David Sitek’s Federal Prism label via NPR.
Seeds was recorded at Sitek’s Federal Prism studio in Los Angles and produced by the guitarist.
TV on the Radio has upcoming dates at Denver’s Riot Fest (Sept. 21), the Henry Miller Library in Big Sur, Calif. (Oct. 18), the Treasure Island Music Festival in San Francisco (Oct. 18-19) and the Life is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas (Oct. 24).
