The Strokes Unveil New Album Title, Release Date, Cover Art

All the seemingly random news tidbits from the Strokesstudio sessions last summer, rumors of a new song, then a New Wave-y track called "One Way Trigger" followed by its B-movie-style lyric poster—now all add up: The New York City quintet just announced their fifth album, called Comedown Machine. It'll arrive on March 26 via RCA. That's the cover art above.

The first official single, "All the Time," which the crew over at Seattle's 107.7 has already heard, drops February 19 (which is when you can pre-order the LP on iTunes, too). "One Way Trigger" will also appear on the record.
