Former Kraftwerk member Karl Bartos is apparently working on his next full-length solo album since he released Communication in 2003. Bartos was credited with writing Kraftwerk classics like “Computer World,” “Man-Machine” and “Trans-Europe Express.” He performed with the electronic music innovators from 1975 to 1990.
Exclaim reported that the German record label Bureau B confirmed Bartos’ plans to release the currently untitled album in spring of 2013 followed by a worldwide tour. The label said that Bartos is “in the studio working in high speed on the very last tracks for the album.”
Bartos was also quoted on the label’s site as saying: “Yes, Bureau B is in play. I’m looking forward to the release with anticipation.”
