TV On the Radio recently announced they’ll release their fifth full-length LP, ‘Seeds,’ later this fall, but you won’t need to wait till then to get your first taste of the album.

The Brooklyn indie icons have premiered the new song, ‘Happy Idiot,’ along with a slick lyric video so you can play along at home. Check it out below.

‘Seeds’ will be the band’s first album since 2011’s ‘Nine Types of Light,’ and their first since bassist Gerard Smith lost his battle with lung cancer nine days after it was released.

“We’ve been through a lot of stuff in the past few years that could have stopped the band cold,” said singer Tunder Adebimpe in a press release announcing the album. “But I’m glad we got it together and took stock of the unique connection we have between each other. The record is, 1000 percent without a doubt, the best thing we’ve ever done.”
