Kraftwerk's singer and founder Ralf Hütter has confirmed that the groundbreaking group are working on a new album which fans can expect "soon".

"We didn't fall asleep," he told the New York Times. "The 168-hour week is still going on since the beginning, since 1970."

The German electronic pioneers are currently in the middle of their eight-day residency at New York's Museum of Modern Art, which consists of the group playing through each of its eight studio albums from 1974 to 2003 with 3-D imaging and a custom surround-sound installation.

The band's sole remaining original member Hütter explained:

Kraftwerk is a living organism. Music is never finished. It starts again tomorrow. The record is just a record, but for us it's nearly boring.


He continued: "We like better the programs that we can operate with. So we are operating, we are upgrading, we are updating continuously. There's continuous reprogramming going on, and composition and new concepts are also coming."

The band's last studio album was 2003's 'Tour de France Soundtracks'.
Last year, they guest edited an issue of Wallpaper* interiors and design magazine, which came in 3D, complete with 3D glasses.
