Karl Bartos, formerly of Kraftwerk, is releasing his second solo studio album, Off the Record, on March 18. The album will include 12 new albums. In talking about his new album, Bartos reveals that it will include “vocoder newspeak, robot sounds, digital glitch, techno pop, catchy melodies, electronic avant-garde, roaring silence, futurism, and, of course, those rhythms!”


Kraftwerk will be performing their reflective KRAFTWERK – CATALOGUE 12345678 in London. The set of shows will take place in the Turbine Hall of Tate Modern from February 6 to 14. During January 11-13 and January 16-20, the band will also play in the native Düsseldorf, Germany at the Kunstammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen museum.

The Tate Modern’s gallery director exclaimed:

“As a former power station, Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall is an ideal venue for Kraftwerk’s explorations of technology, energy and rhythm. Bringing together music, video and performance, these events will be true gesamtkunstwerk– a total work of art.”


Tickets will cost around $97.
