On September 9, Interpol will finally release El Pintor, their first album since the departure of longtime bassist Carlos Dengler. They’ve already shared a black-and-white surf video for the album’s lead single “All the Rage Back Home” and a professional live clip for “Anywhere,” but today the trio has shared another dusky track “Ancient Ways.” This new song relies on gloomy guitar lines and frontman Paul Banks’ near-Corganian moan to hearken back to the dim post-punk strains of their earliest work.

Listen to the full track below as you wait for the El Pintor’s September release on Matador and the Fall tour they have planned in support.
