TV On The Radio resurfaces with new music in the form of “Mercy” – the first single to drop on Dave Sitek‘s Federal Prism label since their 2012 departure from Interscope. The decision to stray from the traditional album release model has prompted the group to dedicate themselves to releasing individual singles. “Mercy” is TV On The Radio’s first new release since their 2011 LP Nine Types Of Light. The release of “Mercy” marks the launch of Federal Prism’s campaign to debut new music via Soundcloud. The music will arrive on the popular platform ahead of its physical release date. Stems will accompany the individual releases from the label to encourage fans to try their hand at remixing the music. Dave Sitek has plans to host the best results on a curated Soundcloud profile. Federal Prism is slated to release more new music in the coming weeks from TVOTR as well as Chuck Inglish and Asher Roth. Listen to TV On The Radio’s new single “Mercy” below.
