Interpol have revealed that their new album will be released in early 2010 - and is a bit of a retro affair.

The record will be the follow-up to 2007's 'Our Love To Admire' and the group's fourth studio album, and the band's drummer Sam Fogarino has revealed how the sound of the LP is a return to that of their 2002 debut album 'Turn On The Bright Lights'.

"The new record falls back towards the first," he told Paste Magazine. He added: "In trying to move forward, there was an unspoken realisation that you can’t let go of your sonic-defining tag."

Although a release date, title or tracklisting is still yet-to-be announced, Forgarino also revealed how the band had reverted back to their early sound.

"There was an effort in Daniel [Kessler]'s guitar tone; he rediscovered it playing in his loft space for a year without anybody," he explained. "The quality of that tone, played in a big room, is just beautiful. It creates an atmosphere."

Meanwhile, Interpol frontman Paul Banks is set to play just two UK shows in December as Julian Plenti. Performing in Manchester and London, the shows are in support of his debut solo album 'Skyscraper' - which was released earlier this year.
