According to NME, The Strokes is set to release their new album on 22nd March 2011.
So guys mark your calendar. But of course this is not even confirmed yet. Maybe or maybe not.
But then again, I really hope they'll release it earlier. Yeah how long do we have to wait exactly? It seems like forever..haha..Okay I'm exaggerating.
Here's something taken from NME magazine. When asked which releases are you most excited about for 2011, the associate editor answered The Strokes. There are few others like REM, Bright Eyes, Metronomy and many more.
Paul Stokes, Associate Editor
"With Nikolai Fraiture describing it as the missing link between 'Room On Fire' and 'First Impressions Of Earth', Julian Casablancas' solo project raising the bar after the band sort of faded away and last summer's festival gigs whetting the appetite, I can't wait to see what The Strokes return with. I'm not expecting them to recapture the spirit of 'Is This It', rather I'm looking forward to see what a wiser, more musically dexterous Strokes are capable of. They proved they still have the capacity to still turn heads and get the blood pumping and so if they get this right – and the signs are good – there's a chance New York's finest will change the game all over again."
Anyway, for the time being, I'm enjoying some old songs from members of The Strokes; Julian, Nikolai and Albert.
Owh, I miss the Strokes!!
P/s: Arctic Monkeys will release new album produced by James-Ford this year. Excited much?
