TV On The Radio’s relationship with Universal’s Interscope, their label since 2006′s ‘Return To Cookie Mountain’, is over, vocalist Tunde Adebimpe has confirmed. Talking to Spin, Adebimpe said this: “Ehhhh… we parted ways with them. 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”.

With new TVOTR set to be released via Federal Prism – the band’s Dave Sitek’s label – later in the year, Adebimpe said that the quartet were “sort of collecting material for a record”, adding: “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”.
