The German electro-pop legends return - in a bit of a hurry for a change...

Kraftwerk are set to rush-release their new single and album to coincide with the centenary of the TOUR DE FRANCE.

The single, ‘Tour De France 03’, will be released on July 7, two days after the start of the world famous bike race, and will be available on CD and 12″ vinyl.

‘Tour De France,’ the album, will feature all-new recordings of ‘Tour De France 03’ alongside brand new compositions and a new version of 1983’s ‘Tour De France.’

The album is due for release on July 21 and Kraftwerk are currently working on the final mix at their Kling Klang studio in Düsseldorf.
