Dave Sitek has always been busy outside of TV on the Radio, producing for Liars, Scarlett Johansson, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and RAAAAAAAANDY (mixtape currently on hold), but he’s using TVOTR’s yearlong hiatus to also work on his first solo album as Maximum Balloon. Announced guests for the album include Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone, Karen O, Yukimi Nagano (Little Dragon), Holly Miranda, and Aku (Dragons Of Zynth) who guests on this track. “Tiger” is the first single from the album, but Sitek is planning on lots of downloads leading up the release date, according to the announcement press release. Watch an adorable teaser below, and listen to “Tiger” via Maximum Balloon’s website.
Maximum Balloon is out 8/24 via DGC/Interscope Records. “Tiger” is available via iTunes today.
