TV On The Radio have announced an upcoming new album in a short trailer released via their website. Scroll down to watch the video.

Slated for an autumn release, 'Seeds' will be the band's fifth studio album and first since 'Nine Types Of Light', which was released in 2011.

'Seeds' will also be the New York group's first album since the death of bass player Gerard Smith, who was diagnosed with lung cancer shortly after finishing work on 'Nine Types Of Light'.

In April 2013, TV On The Radio frontman Tunde Adebimpe confirmed the band had returned to the studio and were working on new material. They went on to unveil new track 'Mercy' that July.

"I'm not sure what's gonna be out when, but there's new stuff coming," said Adebimpe. "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."
