TV On The Radio Leave Interscope Records, Begin Working on New Music

TV On The Radio, Studio Reports


In a new chat with SPIN, TV On The Radio front man Tunde Adebimpe revealed that the Brooklyn-based experimental indie band is about to get more experimental – they’ve parted ways with Interscope Records.

Further, he says that he and co-singer/instrumentalist Kyp Malone recorded with band mate/producer Dave Sitek in Los Angeles recently.

Said Adebimpe on the new sessions:

“I’m not sure what’s gonna be out when, but there’s new stuff coming. 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.”

They’re apparently planning to release the new music on Sitek’s label, Federal Prism. (As a side note, Sitek produced the Yeah Yeah Yeahseclectic new record Mosquito). When asked about Interscope, Adebimpe replied:

“Ehhhh…we parted ways with them. 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. [Laughs] That’s as diplomatic as I can put that.”

Head over to SPIN to read the whole piece.

We had nothing but good words to say about TVOTR’s 2011 album Nine Types of Light, which was sadly released a few days before the death of bassist Gerard Smith.

Still, it’s great to hear the band back in action once again, and here’s hoping the new material on Sitek’s label shows up relatively soon.

    These guys are great – they have also recorded in the middle of the desert with Tinariwen. Too good for a major label. :)
