For the first time since 2007s 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 traveled 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 Reddings drummer) and 80s 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 hes stepping into an even brighter light as a songwriter. During Interpols 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. But more than 20 years on since forming at NYU, the frontman is finally allowing himself to play a role in his own stories.
