Ratatat have announced their new album Magnifique to be released 27 July and stream lead single 'Cream on Chrome'.
The New York duo's fifth studio album is set to be a return to their guitar-driven sound, which has taken a backseat on 2008's LP3 and 2010's LP4. 'Cream in Chrome' already begins to demonstrate this move, with a minimalist riff accompanying a locked-in bass and drums which builds to an oriental influenced outro.
Listen to 'Cream on Chrome' by Ratatat below:
Magnifique has been recorded over a four-year period in-between Evan Mast and Mike Stroud's intervening projects in a variety of locations including Jamaica, Long Island, Upstate New York and their home-studio in Brooklyn.
The tracklisting to Magnifique is as follows:
2 'Cream On Chrome'
7 'Pricks Of Brightness'
8 'Nightclub Amnesia'
9 'Cold Fingers'
13 'I Will Return'
Magnifique will be released on July 27 on XL Recordings and will play Primavera on 30 May.
