WATCH: TV On The Radio's "Nine Types of Light: The Movie"

Check out the re-imagining of the band's new album as an hour-long film.

So, in case you didn’t know, the new TVOTR album Nine Types of Light, is out today.  The album’s solid and, yes, I’m working on a full review, so stay tuned.

What’s also cool is that the band has reimagined the album as an hour-long film.   The band personally asked their friends and the filmmakers they admired to help direct the music videos.

Tunde Adebimpe directed the full Nine Types of Light movie and storybooked the music videos together with interviews from local New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future. He also directed the music video for “Forgotten”.  It’s a different way to experience the album.

No, I’ve not watched the whole film: It clocks in just under an hour, so get comfortable.

So, whatchu think? Leave comments below.
