The Strokes Return To The Studio

It's true....

Pitchfork: The Strokes Return to the Studio
The Strokes are back! Kind of! Or on their way to being back, anyway!

The early-decade New York rock kings are already set to headline two festivals this summer-- England's Isle of Wight and Scotland's RockNess. And now Spin points out an update on the band's website. According to the Strokes themselves, they've returned to the studio, where they're working on the long-awaited follow-up to 2006's First Impressions of Earth.

The band is working with producer Joe Chiccarelli (White Stripes, Shins, My Morning Jacket) and mixer Gus Oberg. They also promise to post "video vignettes" from the sessions on their website.

Eh. Hardly new information. These muhfuckers were in and out of the studio all of last year. Julian, as far back as this time last year, said they had a handful of songs completed. And they spent time last summer in the studio, as well.

It'll be news when a release date/title is announced.

I need to finally listen to First Impressions of Earth. Every time I try, I stop listening to it after I get past the two songs I like.

teehee

And I must give my requisite FUCK YES!

Maybe once the title is announced, we can get a mod to change this thread title? Or we could just start a new one?

Nothing against Elvis, but "Strokes return to studio" isn't as exciting as "Strokes new album is here and it is called ______!"

It seems to me to be a very short time span in between the announcement of the release date and the actual release date. Traditionally (unless it's one of those Radiohead/Raconteurs "It'll be here in a week!" kinda things) there is more time between the album announcement and its actual release. In other words: awesome. We don't have to wait all that long.

And, also, this probably means we'll be hearing a lead track/lead single kinda thing within a couple weeks, at most. Because lead singles tend to be put out there well in advance of the album release, as well. March 22 ain't that far away. At all. Not to mention the sort of atypical factor of knowing the release date but not knowing the album title or artwork. More often than not, those are all announced simultaneously.

I don't really know what I'm getting at. Just that this seems to be an unusual bit of marketing.

I will be watching this very closely, because this is just the beginning of what will probably be a very Strokes-heavy few months of news. Exciting shit.

Also, the countless people that just knew this band would break up and never release another record after FIOE can suck it.

I haven't liked any of their music since Is This It, but I'm still pumped for this. Always nice to have these trashy bastards around, and I thought that Julian Casablancas solo joint was interesting. Not sure how much of that will be incorporated in, but it seems to be a natural progression for their sound.

LeMeL is not the first I've heard say that, but it still always surprises me to hear it.

I always get the songs from the first two albums mixed up. Like which was on which. Because I used to listen to both back to back so often.

Yeah, they both rule. Two of my favorite and most listened to albums ever.

I love the smugness of their first two albums. Can't say I care much about First Impressions apart from a few songs (I think at one point Razorblade was one of my top iTunes songs, but it quickly vanished from my memory).

The mere fact that this will apparently only have 10 tracks leads me to speculate that it will be a shift away from the sort of bombastic and scatterbrained First Impressions, and back to the tighter, more punchy sound of the first two. Pure speculation, of course.

I love, love, love First Impressions, though. Don't get me wrong. Fantastic shit, and it dominated my life and my speakers for months when it first came out. But it doesn't exactly hold up to the first two.

I will say, I've never thought of labeling music as "smug." I think I like it, and I think it's apt in this case. Well done.
