After a four-year hiatus, singer Julian Casablancas has announced that The Strokes are scheduled to release a new album early next year saying, "I think January. I was told not to predict anymore. But I’m pretty sure it should be out in January."
He also revealed that the band has been recording their material in New York instead of their home in Los Angeles, adding:
"For me, there’s something about recording in New York - I was just thinking about it literally yesterday for the first time, in terms of if I could have a choice, because everywhere I’ve ever recorded has kinda been like a logical choice or out of necessity. But there’s something about recording in a nice studio in New York. Maybe it’s just because it’s expensive, I dunno. Recording in LA is nice though."
We're glad that they've decided to come back together after all their various solo projects, but are The Strokes even relevant any more??
What do U think?
