TV on the Radio’s new album, Nine Types of Light, dropped today and with it came the film. Here’s what the band has to say about it:

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.

The film itself runs for nearly a full hour and it’s filled with so many styles and effects that there is something for just about everyone. The last fifteen minutes though made the film for me. It really gave a look into the band through photos from their touring as well as some video footage. So go make a bag of popcorn and enjoy the film.
