Interpol have announced that their new album will be called El Pintor and is out 8 September 2014.

In a post on their website the band confirmed the news.

"We’d like to announce the release of our upcoming new album, El Pintor," they wrote.

"We wrote & recorded the bulk of the album in 2013 in NYC and finished mixing it in London during the early part of this year. We’re very excited to share the album with all of you. The album was recorded at Electric Lady Studios & Atomic Sound by Mr James Brown and mixed by Mr Alan Moulder at Assault & Battery studios. We had a lot of fun making this record and can’t wait for you to hear it.

"The album will be released on September 9th on Matador (North, South and Central America) and September 8th in all other territories by [PIAS]/CO-OP."

The band have also posted a clip of them making El Pintor - which you can see above.

The record - the band's fifth - will be their first without bassist Carlos Dengler, who worked on 2010's Interpol but left before touring began.
