New Yorkers Interpol have begun recording their new album, their third following Turn On The Bright Lights and Antics.
The as-yet-untitled long-player will be the band's first for Capitol, following their recent move from indie label Matador, home to those aforementioned releases. The record's expected to be released in late 2007, and of it the band comments (via their website):
"The atmosphere and environs of a recording facility affect the sound and feel of an album in the subtlest ways. And we are affected. And it is subtle."
Said environs equal the Soho area of New York, rather than, like, Dean Street. Which last we looked - last night, since you asked - hasn't been relocated from central London to NYC just yet.
If you're yet to really 'get' Interpol, you might be interested to hear that soon you'll have the opportunity to win some of their songs, in something we're likely to call a 'competition'. It might have something to do with Our 66, if you can remember back a whole month. Yeah, maybe...
