Great news, Interpol fans! The band is officially working on their 7th studio album.
Interpol are making the follow-up to 2018’s Marauder with legendary producers Flood & Moulder. They’re currently in studio in London with the producers. Flood & Moulder have worked on records by Beach House, Nine Inch Nails, PJ Harvey, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Killers, and many more. In fact, the pair won a BRIT Award for Foals’ 2014 album, Holy Fire.
“We are overjoyed to announce Flood & Moulder will be producing and mixing the next Interpol record,” Interpol guitarist Daniel Kessler says. “We are longtime admirers of their work and delighted to be in the studio with them. Starting this party right.”
The forthcoming album is out next year via Matador Records.
Interpol have some 2022 shows lined up. They’ll be headlining Just Like Heaven at the Rose bowl in Los Angeles. They’re also set to play Mexico City’s Palacio De Los Deportes, and they’ll headline Barcelona’s Primavera Sound.
In June, Interpol took to Instagram to reveal that they’d been writing remotely during COVID-19.
“Interpol has been working on new music since last summer. Due to the pandie, we had to use the internet to circulate ideas and collaborate remotely. This was a new experience for us,” Interpol explain. “The unfortunate constraints of the last 15 months have informed our music positively, we feel. We took it as a chance to grow and made the best of it. Hopefully this work shows that when one is forced to find new ways to meet familiar challenges the results can be unexpected and beautiful.”
Back in February, Interpol released a Mind Over Time bonus track, “Our Love To Admire.” The track, which was previously only available on the Japanese CD edition of the album, is now available to stream. The slow-building track is famous among fans for it use of a voicemail. “Our Love To Admire” comes packed with powerful lyrics like, “Street of thought/ In all your bones/ Hold Your place/ And save your thrown.”
