Kraftwerk's Ralf Hütter has spoken about the German electronic pioneers' rumoured new album.

Speaking to The Guardian's Australia culture blog, he said: “Now this [the band's world tour of their existing albums, concluding in Sydney] is done, one to eight. Now we can concentrate on number nine.”

Prompted to further confirm the album, Hütter says: “Oh yes. Of course. It’s music non stop!”

The album would be a long time in the coming, their first for ten years since 2003's Tour De France Soundtracks.
