Yeah, that's also what I'm hope for. I would like to see them take some type of new direction while keeping with the ultra-confident and punchy style of the first album.

By the way, what do you guys think of their duet with Regina Spektor (Modern Girls and Old-Fashioned Men)?

Oh God, yes. Brilliant duet. Their voices sound great together. Have loved it for years.

Spektor's part is a hell of a lot of fun to sing along to, if the feeling ever strikes you. Alcohol might have to be involved, though.

I never managed to memorize the lyrics for this song but this should help.

Have you seen Somewhere, GAF? There a nice little scene with I'll Try Anything Once in the soundtrack that is just perfect. You'll love it.

I have not seen it. I really want to, though. I'll get around to it sometime soon. Lost In Translation is one of my favorite movies ever, so as long as she continues making films, I will always be excited for them. She earned herself a lifelong fan with that one.

She must be a big fan because there is a Strokes song on the Marie Antoinette soundtrack. Or at least a Strokes song was used in the promotion for it? I don't remember.

EDIT: Yeah, it was "What Ever Happened?" I knew that, and am ashamed that I forgot for a moment.

I really liked their cover of Mercy Mercy Me with Eddie Vedder.

Pitchfork: The Strokes Reveal More Album Details

The album is tentatively titled Angles, and the first single from the ten-song LP will most likely be "Undercover of Darkness".

Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. tells Rolling Stone that the album title represents "what the record sounds like. It comes from five different people," meaning that all of the members of the band contributed to the songwriting process. Other song titles mentioned include "Life Is Simple", "Taken for a Fool", "Call Me Back", "Radio Minor Madness", and "Machu Picchu", which Rolling Stone describes as "a rough wall of jangle over a hip-hop grind, as if the Strokes are cutting a Jay-Z track via the Rolling Stones' Aftermath."

The majority of the album was recorded at Hammond's studio in upstate New York, following scrapped sessions with producer Joe Chiccarelli (White Stripes, the Shins). "Life Is Simple" is the sole surviving song from the Chiccarelli sessions.

The band has plans to tour later this year, but Hammond emphasizes to Rolling Stone that "we want to come back strong but slowly, so we can grow live and also make new music. We want to release albums quicker."

Just got an email today from New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival listing the music lineup, including...

the Strokes. Let the tour schedule begin taking shape, preferably adding Beale St. Music Fest the same weekend.
