With their highly anticipated fifth studio album, Seeds, set to release this fall, TV on the Radio release their latest single, “Careful You.” It’s a powerful record accompanied by a mesmerizing lyric video—through which they delivered their last single as well—and another promising sign that the forthcoming album is shaping up to be a special one.
French lyrics lead off the track following a spooky instrumental opening, allowing a longing, romantic mood to soak into the gritty, layered backdrop. “Careful You” touches on themes we can all relate to—particularly as the infamous cuffing season approaches. It’s about experiencing love (at least a taste of it) and not knowing how to leave it behind when it beings to slip away. The witty wordplay powering the hook hits home, and the track as a whole is an impressive offering from the veteran band.
Listen below, and stay tuned for more.
