In an interview with The Guardian, Kraftwerk’s Ralf Hütter has confirmed that the band are working on their ninth studio album, saying “Now this is done, one to eight… now we can concentrate on number nine”. The album’s title and a release date have not yet been announced.

This summer sees Kraftwerk headlining the main stage at Latitude Festival with a special 3D concert which is said to include “the best of what we saw at Tate Modern”, when the band played eight shows covering each of their eight albums.
