Ratatat Announce New Album, ‘Magnifique’

The innovative electronic guitar duo's fifth studio LP arrives July 17

Ratatat have been teasing long-awaited new material for a little while now, first with new single “Cream on Chrome” (only they could have come up with such an on-the-nose description of their signature guitar sound) and then with a cryptic “Intro” video, which you can watch above.

Turns out the latter is the trailer for their fifth studio LP, Magnifique, which arrives July 17 via XL. The 14-track effort was recorded over four years in Jamaica (!), upstate New York, and Long Island. You can see below that the track list includes their first-ever cover, of the song “I Will Return” by Springwater.
