TV on the Radio singer Tunde Adebimpe has revealed that the band is splitting ways with Interscope, their label since their 2006 release, Return to Cookie Mountain.
TV on the Radio also recently announced their plans to release a new sing on band member Dave Sitek’s label, Federal Prism. The material for this new record will be their first since the passing of their bassist, Gerard Smith, in 2011. Adebimpe comments about the creative process to the new record:
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… I like coming in and saying, “Let’s make a couple songs,” not feeling any sort of pressure to lock ourselves in a room. [Laughs] I don’t think anyone has the space [in their lives] to do that ever again… There’s actually no more room for too much messing around, or for any kind of negativity.
TV on the Radio will play Brooklyn’s Crossing Brooklyn Ferry Festival this weekend. On May 10-12th, the TV on the Radio curated edition of All Tommorrow’s Parties festival will take place in Camber Sands, England. The festival will feature De La Soul, !!!, and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.
