"Will Do"

The first single from TV on the Radio's fifth album is a relatively straightforward declaration of heartache from some cerebral artistes – and one of the band's prettiest songs ever. "Will Do" wraps Tunde Adebimpe's falsetto in fuzzy synths, atonal guitars and chamber-group strings, as he pledges his heart to someone who won't be returning the favor any time soon. "I'll be there to take care of you if ever you should decide that you don't want to waste your life in the middle of a lovesick lullaby," Adebimpe sighs, a gangster of love set against excellent atmospheric throb.
