Published Apr 12, 2011As previously reported, TV on the Radio's Nine Types of Light is not only an album, but a feature-length film. The flick is being included with the deluxe version of the record, but you can also watch it now online.
Today, the band put the film on YouTube, giving the following description:
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."
Of course, Nine Types of Light is finally out today via Interscope.
