Kraftwerk confirm plans for new album

Kraftwerk have confirmed that they are recording a new album. The iconic group insisted that they are not worried about getting older and have no plans to quit making music in the foreseeable future. When asked about the possibility of new material, frontman Ralf Hutter told German magazine Der Spiegel: “Of course. Why should we stop doing what we love to do?

The 63-year-old musician also spoke about the hierarchy within the group, maintaining that the band is “still autonomous and independent”.
