Interpol have almost completed their long-awaited new album, guitarist Daniel Kessler has told NME.

The follow-up to 2004’s ‘Antics’ will be the group’s first with major label Capitol, and their first with a producer, Rich Costey, who has previously worked with Muse.

Kessler says the album is more “expressive” than its predecessors.

He said: “We had keyboards on from the start which we’ve never done before,” he said. “It’s like a fifth member. There’s a lot more texture, and interesting sounds, there’s definitely progression and growth.”

Kessler explained that the band would start naming the record once all the work had finished, but dismissed internet rumours it will be called ‘Moderation’.

'Moderation'? Really? That sounds terrible – small doses!” joked Kessler. “We’re going to start deciding the titles in the next week or so. We’ve got on called ‘Mammoth’ at the moment, I doubt that’s going to change and another called ‘The Heimlich Manoeuvre’, we’ll see if we keep that, it could be funny.”

Plus – in this week’s NME get a free DVD featuring all of the best moments from the 2007 NME Awards, including a behind-the-scenes look at the rock and rave tours, a look back at our month of London shows, a peek into the NME photo room at the awards itself and a chat with Godlike Geniuses Primal Scream.
