Following their latest single, and per an announcement about their album release show at The Metropolitan Museum of Art's "Temple of Dendur" set for September 2, Interpol's highly anticipated fifth studio album El Pintor is up for stream on NPR.

A band that's heavily rooted in New York City's post-punk underground, a scene in which hundreds of bands toiled without finding any major success, Interpol seems to have lasted the test of time--and that's some 12 years after their initial release, Turn on the Bright Lights.

Perhaps it's their edgy aesthetic that's still a mainstay of the mainstream, or maybe it's that music with such driving intensity is still on the airwaves and Interwebs, but the band finds a way around the wall of predictability.

Make your way to NPR for an exclusive stream of El Pintor now and pick up a copy September 9 when it comes out via digital outlets.

Until then, "Ancient Ways" is the name of the game for the next show.
