Check out tomorrow's copy of The Guardian, not only are they giving away free coffee now, but also a link to the new Fever Ray live album, possibly the last ever release from Fever Ray.

In the interview, Karin Dreijer Andersson talks about how much she dislikes promotion and how this year will be the final curtain call for the side-project.

She says: "I just think that if you create good music, as art it has its own value, and I don't think so much it has to do with the person behind it. Would I like to just make music and not promote it at all? Like, not do interviews? Yes.

"I've read almost no books about artists. I'm just interested in the performance part of it. Sometimes I'd like to know how female artists combine their family and their work, but that is more practical advice. I'm not interested in what they had for breakfast."

She added that she will be retiring the Fever Ray project after a final live gig in London in December.

"I don't know what will happen, I will probably start to work with Olaf [her brother and bandmate in The Knife] again. That will take ages, to make an album. But for Fever Ray, for a very long time, it's the last."

The track-list for the live album is:

If I Had A Heart
Triangle Walks
Concrete Walls
Seven
I’m Not Done
Now’s The Only Time I Know
Keep The Streets Empty
Dry And Dusty
Stranger Than Kindness
When I Grow Up
