It’s not often that Kraftwerk grants interviews, but the New York Times scored one. Mr. Hütter, the band’s sole remaining original member, spoke with Times reporter on Friday afternoon in an office at MoMA. He was accompanied and occasionally translated by the curator of the museum’s events, Klaus Biesenbach.
There hasn’t been a Kraftwerk studio album since Tour de France in 2003, but Mr. Hütter said a new Kraftwerk album was under way. “We didn’t fall asleep,” he said. “The 168-hour week is still going on since the beginning, since 1970.” And when can listeners expect the new album? “Soon,” he said. He would not elaborate.
