It's been quite some time since we heard any new material from TV On The Radio
; it's actually been over two years since the release of their most recent LP Nine Types Of Light
. We're not sticking out necks on the line when we say it's been too damn long since we heard Tunde and co. unleash something innovative and inspiring. Today, our insatiable craving for something bubbly, dark, and genre-bending was momentarily subdued with the appearance of a random YouTube video featuring a new song from the group set loose during a live performance last weekend at All Tomorrow Parties Festival in Camber Sands, UK.
The song is called "Mercy", and it's expected to a part of whatever new collection of material TV On The Radio have been and are currently working on, as Tunde discussed in a recent SPIN interview
. The song, although captured by a fan on a cell phone, clearly screams good ole' TV On The Radio with its chaotic loudness and soulful fury. Watch/Listen below.
