It's the band's first full-length effort since 2018

Interpol have shared details of their seventh studio album, The Other Side Of Make-Believe.

Out in July, it's their first full-length effort since 2018's Marauder, and worked on in London alongside producers Alan Moulder and Flood. Above, you can watch a video for the new album's lead track, 'Toni'.

Speaking about the track's video, which is billed as the first of a two-part film, in a statement, director Van Alpert said: "I wrote a crazy idea that I felt was new for Interpol, a hyper-modern, cinematic dance film. A lover's on the run story, with a classic cliffhanger ending. Dream job working for my all-time favourite band! Paul Banks ties everything together and elevated the concept, because he's naturally a great actor, artist and collaborator."

Matador will release The Other Side Of Make-Believe on July 15, 2022.
