In an interview with the New York Times, Kraftwerk’s Ralf Hütter has revealed, in a rather cryptic fashion, that the band are working on a new album. The new material will be the band’s first since 2003’s ‘Tour De France Soundtracks’, and their first since founder member Florian Schneider departed the band in 2008. The interview followed on from Kraftwerk’s eight-night residency at New York’s Museum of Modern Art last week, where the band performed each album in full on consecutive nights, as well as a wide selection of other material.

“Kraftwerk is a living organism, music is never finished. It starts again tomorrow. The record is just a record, but for us it’s nearly boring. We like better the programs that we can operate with. So we are operating, we are upgrading, we are updating continuously. There’s continuous reprogramming going on, and composition and new concepts are also coming . . . We learn from noise, and we learn from going to clubs.”
