According to the bands site, “Nine Types of Light is as much an album as it is a movie by TV on the Radio. 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. Tunde also directed the music video for Forgotten.

TV on the Radio fans have been eagerly awaiting the latest offering, ever since Dear Science was released in 2008. Well, the wait is over… Nine Types of Light is available today.

    I agree that there is something that doesn’t translate about TV on the Radio’s live performance. I haven’t seen them in years but I couldn’t put my finger on what was missing. They are great musicians, they sound pretty good, but their set list had a lot of stop/ starts. It’s not my idea of an AMAZING show but there’s something comforting seeing these guys and how much they’ve grown. I say well on them.
