Interpol have shared the gritty new single ‘Number 10’ from their upcoming album ‘Marauder’. Check it out below.
Having launched their sixth album with huge comeback track ‘The Rover‘, the next taster is one of the most raw, anxious and jagged moments on their most propulsive and kinetic album to date – telling the story of “a secret office romance between Ella, a domineering boss, and her employee” with “a pent-up (and unconsummated) desire”.
‘Marauder’ will arrive via Matador Records on August 24, the “visceral” and “rock n’ roll” follow-up to 2014’s acclaimed ‘El Pintor‘ was written in Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ rehearsal space in Manhattan before being recorded at Tarbox Studios with Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips, MGMT, Spoon, Mogwai and more).
“This record is where I feel touching on real things that have happened to me are exciting and evocative to write about,” said frontman Paul Banks of the album. “I think in the past, I always felt autobiography was too small a thing for me to reference. I feel like now, I’m able to romanticise parts of my own life.”
He added: “’Marauder ‘is a facet of myself. That’s the guy that fucks up friendships and does crazy shit. He taught me a lot, but it’s representative of a persona that’s best left in song. In a way, this album is like giving him a name and putting him to bed.”
