It’s Official: The Strokes Are Working On a New Record

I'll be waiting for you, baby

Great new for Strokes fans everywhere, the American rock band is currently in the studio working on a full length follow-up to 2013’s Comedown Machine.

The announcement was confirmed by guitarist Nick Valens, who is promoting his latest project CRX.

“We are slowly but surely working on an album. I don’t know when it’s going to be released, we’re kind of just in writing sessions. We’re writing. I’m actually in New York at the moment, at a studio in New York for that.”

Valensi recently said that The Strokes were gearing for a 2017 release.

“If I start saying a lot now, people get too excited,” he said during an interview with NME. “Then there’s all this hype you’ve got to compete with, and that’s not fun. If anything, I’d rather just pull a Beyoncé at some point next year and just drop shit.”

We’re waiting.
