SPIN reported about the news of the group's new promo video on July 29, 2014. It follows the debut of three new songs at the 2014 BottleRock Festival. Napa Valley got to be the first to hear TV on the Radio perform three tracks that will be a part of the Seeds album track list.
The band has not released a major LP since 2011. Seeds has been in production since 2013, when the band announced via a Facebook post that they were working on a new album. It will be released through the record label Harvest Records.
The thirty second video for TV on the Radio's fifth studio album opens with a technicolor fountain of colored foam spilling up in front of a black background set to guitars. The foam eventually starts to form together like an atomic cloud before cutting to white text that reads the band's name – and nothing else.
One can expect that the music heard in the video will also be heard, at full length, on the Seeds album. It definitely fits in with the band's eclectic brand of Brooklyn rock.
TV on the Radio is an American indie art rock band who formed 14 years ago. It is currently made up of vocalist Tunde Adebimpe, guitarist and vocalist Kyp Malone, guitarist and keyboardist David Sitek, and drummer and guitarist Jaleel Bunton. Their albums have continually placed high on the American Billboard charts since their inception.
Seeds will drop in digital and physical format later this year, sometime during the fall. A definite release date has yet to be announced. It will be produced by fellow band member David Sitek, who has a long history of producing music, including working with such music acts as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Santigold and Kelis.
