From a Pitchfork article:
Out from the lab and onto your stereo this summer, Chemical Chords is the first proper LP from Stereolab since 2004's Margerine Eclipse (not counting the EP collection Fab Four Suture).
The disc is due worldwide August 18 and in the U.S. August 19 from 4AD. Featuring 13 songs by Laetitia Sadier and Tim Gane and one solo Gane composition, the record also sports string and brass arrangements from former member/current High Llama Sean O'Hagan.
Stereolab have plans to tout the release of Chemical Chords with a few festival appearances this summer. If you can't wait, there's always the recently released (and very good) Monstre Cosmic from Sadier's Monade project.
