The Strokes reportedly returned to the studio last summer to start work on their first new material since 2011's "reunion" album Angles. Well, now it appears that we may hear the fruits of their labors soon: Seattle's 107.7 is reporting that the band's label, RCA, dropped off a new single called "All the Time," which the station promises to "leak" soon. And now Billboard has confirmed that the quintet's fifth album will drop in 2013.
A post on The End's Facebook page reads, "Previewing brand new Strokes 'All the Time' thanks to RCA Records. We'll have to 'leak' this soon. You won't be disappointed..."
No word yet if "All The Time" is from the Strokes' next album, but hey: NEW STROKES MUSIC, YOU GUYS! And it's also worth nothing that 107.7 was the station the band chose to premiere Angles singles "Taken for a Fool" and "Machu Picchu."
And according to guitarist Albert Hammond Jr.'s dad, the new tunes are "incredible." In an interview with NME last summer, Hammond Sr. said, "Albert says that the stuff they're doing is incredible. They're doing it themselves with their friend, engineer and producer. He just says 'Dad, it's incredible.'"
