Speaking backstage at the NME Awards, where Kraftwerk picked up Best International Band, Pelle said: “We’re in cold Sweden at the moment making our new record.

“We’ve done quite a lot of singles for the album already but we keep changing some things around.

“The new stuff is like The Sex Pistols meets Detroit Cobras meets[a][/a].”

“We’re hoping to get it out around September,” he added.
