LEEDS, UNITED KINGDOM - AUGUST 26: Paul Banks of Interpol performs on stage during day one of Leeds Festival at Bramham Park
Nick Pickles

Interpol frontman Paul Banks is back as Julien Plenti, his solo nom de tune, and according to Pitchfork, he dropped his new EP Julian Plenti Lives... today (June 26). It features a cover of late superstar rap producer J Dilla, but before you hear that, listen to an original track off the EP, "Summertime is Coming," below. It's as brooding as classic Interpol, but Banks/Plenti does his best to get excited about the summer: "The summer time is coming, so get out / The season is calling / The season is calling / Get out." His record label, Matador, has also confirmed that Plenti's next full-length album will drop in October.
