TV On The Radio released their new album Nine Types Of Light yesterday. If you choose to pick up the deluxe dition you get a DVD featuring music videos for the entire album. Together, the videos form “a visual re-imagining of the record” making it “as much an album as it is a movie“. Tunde Adebimpe, singer of the band directed the film and “storybooked the music videos together with interviews from local New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future“.
It may sound far-reaching but when Daft Punk did it with their second album Discovery the result was awesome. The boys from TVOTR are no fools either but you don’t have shell out any bucks just yet to find out if their effort is any good, they’ve been generous enough to offer the entire film up on Youtube. The popcorn you’ll still have to pay for yourself though.
