Interpol have given an update on their upcoming new album – and it looks like it could be with us very soon.
The NYC indie bunch confirmed that they had started work on a new LP in January 2017. Expected to drop at some point this year, the album marks the band’s sixth full-length – following 2014’s ‘El Pintor’. It will be released via Matador Records.
Previously, the trio had shared a few behind-the-scenes studio shots.
Now, the group have posted a Bowie-featuring image – which is simply captioned: “Mastering”. Unsurprisingly, fans are getting pretty excited within the comments section. Check out the Instagram post below.
We could be set to hear something new within a matter of weeks, as the band are scheduled to perform at INMusic Festival in Croatia next month. Other acts appearing include Queens Of The Stone Age, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, David Byrne, St. Vincent, The Kills and more.
In July, the group will support The Cure in Hyde Park as part of British Summer Time festival. Goldfrapp, Ride and Slowdive are also among the event’s special guests.
Last year, Interpol celebrated the 15th anniversary of their debut album, ‘Turn On The Bright Lights’, with a triumphant show at London’s Alexandra Palace.
During the gig, the crowd were surprised by a debut performance of a new track, ‘Real Life’. The slice of new material was described as a “rush of dark but pop-tinged post-punk that leans on the more direct sound of their last album”.
