Opening up my email to find out that Interpol have released a new track makes a very joyous morning indeed. Indie rockers Interpol have released a new song for free download on their website. Unveiled on Thursday morning, Lights is the first track from Interpol’s new album. At over five minutes long, it is slow, dark and melodic, taking it’s time to build up to Paul Banks’ usual ponderous vocals.
In November last year drummer Sam Forgarino revealed that the band would be channeling the sound of their first album Turn On the Bright Lights on its new recordings. However, if Lights is anything to go by, Interpol seem to have something far more ambitious in mind for their fourth album.
Download it for yourself or have a listen below.
