Interpol announce first new album in four years
Bradley Norman, Avid Sound Staff Writer
Nearly four years after the release of their self-titled fourth studio album, indie alternative rock band Interpol announced the release of their fifth, titled El Pintor.
The album, translated “The Painter,” is slated for release on Sept. 9, 2014, in the United States and South America but will be available in all other territories on Sept. 8.
In a post published on their website, the band, now a trio, addressed their fans and gave them insight on the new record:
"We’re very excited to share the album with all of you," they said. "We had a lot of fun making this record and can’t wait for you to hear it.”
The album was recorded at Electric Lady Studios and Atomic Sound in New York City with James Brown, who has worked with bands such as Arctic Monkeys and Foo Fighters, and mixed by Alan Moulder (Foals and The Vaccines) in London’s Assault and Battery studios.
El Pintor is available for pre-order through their website and the official track listing is as follows:
1. “All the Rage Back Home”
2. “My Desire”
4. “Same Town, New Story”
5. “My Blue Supreme”
6. “Everything is Wrong”
7. “Breaker 1”
8. “Ancient Ways”
9. “Tidal Wave”
10. “Twice as Hard”
The band also collected footage of the recording process and put together a mini-documentary of sorts for fans, which you can watch above.
