Interpol Premiere New Song, "Number 10"

Interpol have premiered a new song, "Number 10." You can check it out below. 

"Number  10"—a terse, tightly coiled tale of an unconsummated workplace  romance—is the second single from the band's upcoming sixth album, Marauder.  Propulsive, melodically fascinating and featuring top-notch six-string work across the board, it's one of the band's best tracks in years. 

Marauder was produced by Dave Fridmann (The Flaming  Lips, Spoon, Mogwai), and is the first album Interpol have made with an outside producer since 2007's Our Love to Admire.

This stripped-down sense goes beyond just the music in Marauder though.  Singer/guitarist Paul Banks, so often distant—almost unapproachable—in  the band's earlier material, injects more of himself and his own experiences into Marauder

“This record is where I feel touching on real things that have happened to me are  exciting and evocative to write about,” he said in a press release about  the album. “I think in the past, I always felt autobiography was too  small a thing for me to reference. I feel like now, I’m able to romanticize parts of my own life.”

Marauder is a facet of myself," Banks continued. "That’s the guy that fucks up  friendships and does crazy shit. He taught me a lot, but it’s  representative of a persona that’s best left in song. In a way, this album is like giving him a name and putting him to bed.”

Marauder is set for an August 24 release via Matador. You can preorder it right here, and check out its tracklist—along with the band's newly announced tour dates—below.
