While we all wait for TV On The Radio’s Nine Types of Light to be released next Tuesday, the New York indie-rockers have given us plenty of reasons to get even more excited. For starters, the band has streamed their new album a week early over at The Guardian. That’s not all: they also have a trailer for a movie that they’re premiering on April 12 to coincide with the record’s release.
According to the band’s press release, “the movie is meant to be a visual re-imagining of the record, and includes a music video for every song on the album. The band personally asked their friends and the filmmakers they admired to help direct the music videos. Tunde Adebimpe, the director for the full Nine Types of Light movie, storybooked the music videos together with interviews from local New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future.”
Adebimpe also directed the music video for “Forgotten.” Check out a list of who directed each video, as well as the trailer below. Nine Types of Light arrives in stores on April 12 via Interscope.
