Kraftwerk working on new album

By | Published on Thursday 13 June 2013


Kraftwerk are working on a new album – their ninth, eleventh or twelfth depending on your view. The group’s sole original member Ralf Hütter says ninth though, so let’s go with that.

The band have, of course, been recently performing the eight albums featured in their boxset, ‘The Catalogue’ (starting with 1974’s ‘Autobahn’ and including 1991 remix album ‘The Mix’ but not featuring their first three albums as a duo). However, with their ‘The Catalogue’ tour now complete, and only a handful of festival shows to get out of the way, thoughts are turning back to the studio.

In a rare interview, Hütter told The Guardian: “Now this is done, one to eight. Now we can concentrate on number nine”.

Asked if there was a timeline for work on the album, he added: “Of course. It’s music non stop!”
