Looks like some other folks have heard Under Cover Of Darkness as well:
The Strokes Sound Nostalgic for Themselves on Their New Single -- Vulture

(It'll sound great on an album people will be listening to in spring.) It's also got a bunch of funny dueling guitar leads, big changes, thought-out structures, and that wonderful trick where what you think is a decent chorus is just the lead-in to a great one — but in this case, instead of sounding like the band is trying too hard, it sounds like they’re just having fun. (One of the guitar bends in the intro seems intentionally, heroically goofy; same with a hilarious falsetto chirp later on.) They’ve finally found a way to try interesting things and still seem rakish, sly, and unconcerned about it.
O, mighty and terrible Leak Gods, have mercy upon us in our time of need.

Sort-of-cool new promo poster:

No cover art yet, but at least it's something.

Which, now that I think about it, describes about 90% of their output.

So, I don't really know what I was expecting here.

And it looks like the thirty-second Amazon preview got pulled. For those of you who weren't able to catch it, here's a YouTube re-upload:

What's better than the first new Strokes song in five years? How about the first new Strokes song in five years...for free?
The Strokes to release 'Under Cover Of Darkness' as free download | News | NME.COM
Also, they're releasing a 7" single of the tune for Record Store Day.
