The track is taken from the band’s fifth studio album ‘Seeds’, which was released on Tuesday (November 18). A video for ‘Happy Idiot’ was also recently unveiled, starring Karen Gillan plus Paul ‘Pee-Wee Herman’ Reubens as a racing driver suffering a mental breakdown.
Speaking to NME last month, TV On The Radio guitarist revealed his interest in again working with Liam Gallagher by suggesting the singer should record solo material with him following the Beady Eye split. Sitek produced the group’s second album ‘BE’.
“Liam’s hilarious, that guy really makes me laugh. And he’s super talented,” said Sitek. “I remember when he first went up to the microphone, we had no effects and it was just like, ‘wow’. He should either have a show or get back in the studio with me and we’ll make a couple of tracks for fun.”
