Kraftwerk are set to start work on their first new record in a decade.

The group recently refreshed fans' memories of their eight hit albums by playing them in full on consecutive nights during a special concert series in London and New York, as well as similar residencies in Australia and Germany.

Now the Model hitmakers have thrilled devotees by announcing plans to make their ninth studio album, which will mark their first new record since 2003's Tour de France Soundtracks.

Bandmember Ralf Hutter says, "Now this (the concerts) is done, one to eight. Now we can concentrate on (album) number nine."
