The Swedish brother and sister duo of Karin Dreijer Andersson and Olof Dreijer have not released an album since 2006's critically-acclaimed Silent Shout.
The mysterious teaser was included in a press release regarding the new record, entitled 'We asked our friends and lovers to help us'.
The video features abstract images and an ambient soundtrack, giving little clue as to the content of the upcoming album.
Shaking the Habitual will be released on April 9, 2013 through Brille/Mute, and will also be supported by a European tour in 2013.
Projects that The Knife have embarked on during their hiatus include composing an opera score, and Karin Dreijer Andersson's solo project Fever Ray.
