The Knife have teased the release of their brand new album via a cryptic trailer.

Click below to watch the short video from the Swedish electro - Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer - whose last album was 2006's 'Silent Shout'.

The video is accompanied by text which reads: "Music can be so meaningless. We had to find lust. We asked our friends and lovers to help us."

Pitchfork reports that the new album will be called 'Shaking The Habitual'.

The album will be released in the Spring of 2013 on the Mute label, and will also feature Shannon Funchess of Light Asylum.

Since the release of 'Silent Shout', singer Karin Dreijer Andersson released one self-titled album as Fever Ray, in 2009.

In 2010 she and bandmate Olof Dreijer collaborated with Mt Sims and Planningtorock on the Charles Darwin-inspired opera 'Tomorrow, In A Year'.
