TV on the Radio have unveiled “Careful You”, one of the tracks set to appear on their upcoming fifth studio album, Seeds. Whereas “Happy Idiot” was a straight-forward barn-burner, this latest teaser track is a bit more nuanced. Amid the rumbling of reverb-heavy drums and blown-out guitars and synths (a slightly jarring soundscape if there ever was one) rests the heart and poetry of a deep and sultry ballad, a soundtrack perfect for lusty hookups. Rarely out of sync, these elements only enhance one another, resulting in a number that’s utterly beguiling while keeping you thoroughly engaged.
Watch the accompanying lyric video below.
Seeds is due out November 18th via Harvest Records. In support of the album, TVOTR will embark on a US tour later this month, beginning October 17th in Santa Barbara, CA. Consult their full schedule here.
