TV On The Radio have debuted a new track titled 'Mercy' - scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch.

The band performed the track live at last weekend's ATP festival (May 10 - 12) at Pontin's Camber Sands Holiday Park. They curated the bash, which also featured performances from Death Grips, De La Soul, CSS, Light Asylum and Unknown Mortal Orchestra.

Last month, TV On The Radio frontman Tunde Adebimpe confirmed the band had been working on new material and had been in the studio working on a studio album. "I'm not sure what's gonna be out when, but there's new stuff coming," he said. "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," he added.

Any future album will be released via Dave Sitek's label Federal Prism after TV On The Radio left Interscope following the release of their last LP, 'Nine Types Of Light', which was released in April 2011. "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."
