For the first time since 2007’s ‘Our Love To Admire’, Interpol have opened themselves up to the input of a producer. For two- week spells between December of 2017 to April of 2018, they travelled to upstate New York to work with Dave Fridmann - famed for recording with Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips, MGMT, Spoon, Mogwai and countless more.

In the run up to writing and recording, Sam found himself immersed in soul drummers such as Al Jackson Jr (Otis Redding’s drummer) and 80’s funk producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. “How can I make shit swing?” was the question Sam repeatedly asked himself and the answer is in the striding gallop of opener ‘If You Really Love Nothing’, the embellished skip ‘n’ bounce of ‘Stay In Touch’ and the R&B swagger of closer ‘It Probably Matters’. Interpol have always been world- beaters at creating a feeling but ‘Marauder’ is where the feel is just as crucial.

Paul may have stepped out of the shadows as a bassist but he’s stepping into an even brighter light as a songwriter. During Interpol’s previous albums, the singer largely kept himself out of his own work, preferring to fill his lyrics with detached thoughts, characters and observations, often phrased in abstract. However, more than 20 years on since forming at NYU, the frontman is finally allowing himself to play a role in his own stories. “This record is where I feel touching on real things that have happened to me are exciting and evocative to write about,” he explains. “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.”

Global dates announced, including Madison Square Garden, Hollywood Bowl, Royal Albert Hall and Japan.
