Quick News

British band These New Puritans will release their new album, Field of Reeds, on June 10.

TV on the Radio has officially parted ways with Interscope records and are currently working on new material. Speaking to Spin, singer Tunde Adebimpe said, "Kyp [Malone] and I went to Dave's place and studio in L.A. the last week of March and we finished a couple of songs. I'm not sure what's gonna be out when, but there's new stuff coming. We're sort of collecting material for a record, but right now we're only thinking in terms of songs, smaller things we can put out regularly until an album seems possible... I like coming in and saying, "Let's make a couple songs," not feeling any sort of pressure to lock ourselves in a room. [Laughs] I don't think anyone has the space [in their lives] to do that ever again... There's actually no more room for too much messing around, or for any kind of negativity."

On May 5 at MoMA's PS1 in Queens, New York, The National will perform their song "Sorrow" for six straight hours as part of a collaboration with Icelandic artist Ragnar Kjartansson called "A Lot of Sorrow."
