Angles, the first new album from the Strokes since 2006’s First Impressions of Earth, is due March 21 in the UK via Rough Trade and a day later in the U.S. via RCA. Their first single Under Cover of Darkness is available for download on the band’s website. Hear the YouTube stream above.
It’s been too long since we’ve had an Albert Hammond, Jr. guitar solo, lyrics from frontman Julian Casablancas, guitar rifts from Nick Valensi, and beats by drummer Fab Moretti and bassist Nikolai Fraiture. The 10 new songs were all written, in various combination, by everyone in the band: a first for a Strokes album. We can’t wait!
Angles track listing:
1. Machu Picchu
2. Under Cover of Darkness
3. Two Kinds of Happiness
4. You’re So Right
5. Taken For A Fool
7. Call Me Back
10. Life Is Simple In The Moonlight
