Our Love to Admire is the third studio album by American rock band Interpol, released on July 10, 2007, through Capitol Records and Parlophone. Recorded at Electric Lady Studios in Greenwich Village and The Magic Shop in New York City,[1] the album is the group's first to be released on a major label as they departed from Matador Records beforehand. On April 25, 2007, the band officially announced the album title as Our Love to Admire as well as the track listing.[2] The first single off the new album, "The Heinrich Maneuver", was released on May 7, 2007.[3]

Our Love to Admire was largely well-received; however, the album's elaborate musical arrangement polarized some critics, since it was such a departure from the relatively simple sound the band had been known for on previous albums. The album was re-released with a bonus DVD in the UK and Mexico on November 19, 2007, featuring music videos for "The Heinrich Maneuver" and "No I in Threesome" as well as live performances from the Astoria.[4]

In a 2018 interview with Vice, lead singer Paul Banks listed Our Love to Admire as his least favorite of the band's albums. Banks had just gotten sober and the pressure of working with a major label ultimately resulted in a "stressful" and "unpleasant" experience that was also "way too much work". The group had similar issues with the production of their fourth album Interpol, but said that the group was "proud of the music" on both, with Banks saying: "some of my favorite songs we ever wrote are on these two records, so it's not like the situation was bad and the record is bad."[5] Drummer Sam Fogarino also cited issues with the new label during the album's production, claiming that the band felt welcome at first, but once the label was sold, that changed: "We're a number now, we're a number on a data print out."[6] Following the album's release, Interpol returned to Matador.
