Interpol performed their new single ‘The Rover’ on last night’s episode of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert (June 8).
The song is taken from their new album Marauder, which they announced earlier this week.
Marking their sixth full-length record, the album was written in Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ rehearsal space in Manhattan. It was later recorded at Tarbox Studios with Dave Fridmann (Mercury Rev, Flaming Lips, MGMT, Spoon, Mogwai and more).
Watch their performance of ‘The Rover’ on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert below.
Speaking of the forthcoming new album, frontman Paul Banks said: “This record is where I feel touching on real things that have happened to me are exciting and evocative to write about.
“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 romanticise parts of my own life.”
He added: “’Marauder ‘is a facet of myself. 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.” You can see the full track listing below.
The tracklist for ‘Marauder’ is:
1. If You Really Love Nothing
2. The Rover
4. Flight of Fancy
5. Stay in Touch
6. Interlude 1
7. Mountain Child
10. Number 10
11. Party’s Over
12. Interlude 2
13. It Probably Matters
‘Marauder’ will be released on August 24, via Matador Records.
