Although they announced their new album last month – giving it a name and release date (El Pintor, 8 September if you missed the memo) – Interpol still haven’t unleashed any proper material from it.
All we’ve had to go on so far is some grainy fan-shot footage of them playing ‘Anywhere’ and ‘My Desire’ earlier this year during the NME Awards Tour.
Today the New York band have released a ‘professionally shot’ live video of them performing ‘Anywhere’ at Brixton Academy – although there’s a bit too much of the backs of people’s heads for it to be a proper job, surely! Good song though…
El Pintor (which means ‘The Painter’ in Spanish and is also a clever anagram of ‘Interpol’, trivia fans) is the bands fifth studio album and their first for four years. It’s available to preorder below:
As well as ‘Anywhere’, the only other new material from El Pintor currently in the public domain is this live performance of ‘My Desire’:
