TV On The Radio have returned to the studio and started working on their next album, frontman Tunde Adebimpe has confirmed.

The band last released an album in 2011 with all of the members leading productive musical lives away from the band. However, as confirmed by Adebimpe, the four of them recently reunited in New York and began working on "less precious" new songs. Speaking to Spin, he said: "Kyp Malone and I went to Dave Sitek's place and studio in LA 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. Which I love. It's not that you're less precious about the process, but I like coming in and saying, 'Let's make a couple songs', not feeling any sort of pressure to lock ourselves in a room."

Any future album will be released via Dave Sitek's label Federal Prism after TV On The Radio left Interscope following the release of 'Nine Types Of Light'. "We parted ways with them," says Adebimpe. "To the best of my knowledge, they can ask about another record, but I don't think we're gonna do that. Um, yeah they did what they did. That's as diplomatic as I can put that."

Meanwhile, TV On The Radio and Deerhunter are set to curate May and June's ATP festivals at Pontin's Camber Sands Holiday Park. TV On The Radio will curate the weekend running May 10-12 with the second weekend, which takes place June 21-23, will be curated by Deerhunter, who will be playing three sets over the weekend, playing their albums 'Cryptograms' (2007), 'Microcastle' (2008) and 'Halcyon Digest' (2010) one at a time.
