New Song From TVOTR Side-Project Maximum Balloon

Dave Sitek of TV On The Radio has plans to release a solo album August 24th under the moniker Maximum Balloon. The album will feature guest appearances by Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Karen O, David Byrne, TVOTR’s Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone, Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano, Holly Miranda, and Theophilus London. For those who don’t know, Sitek is not only a musician / singer, but also a producer. His production resume includes all TVOTR albums (which means he produced Dear Science, one of the best albums of 2008), Foals, Wale, Liars, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Maximum Balloon’s first single “Tiger” features Aku from Dragons of Synth and can be streamed for free from his website here. It’s definitely worth a listen if you’re into TVOTR, who are in the middle of a planned year-long hiatus.

Another option for hearing the new track is to watch Daisy Lowe (left) dancing to “Tiger” as she poses for Esquire UK after the jump. It’s not R rated or anything (except the still they use as the preview), but I wouldn’t watch it at work.

Check back later for info on Sitek’s work with comedian Aziz Ansari.
