Speaking to NME, in an interview which you can read by picking up the current issue of the magazine, singer Kele Okereke revealed: "If we'd not had a break [after third album 'Intimacy'], we'd have gone on to making the fourth record in 2010 but it would probably have been our last. Now, I feel that the future's open. I've got no idea what the future is but I'm very proud of 'Four'."

Earlier this month (July 10), Bloc Party premiered the track 'Octopus', the first single to be taken from 'Four'. You can hear the track by clicking below.
