The Strokes New Album Recording Process Was Awful

(Gibson) The Strokes are streaming their fourth studio album, Angles, online. The album, which drops March 22 in the U.S. and March 21 in the U.K., is available to hear at their official website, TheStrokes.com.

The Strokes' guitarist Nick Valensi recently checked in about the new album, and described the recording process for Angles as "awful," mainly because vocalist Julian Casablancas was absent from the group's recording sessions, instead taping his vocals remotely at Electric Lady Studios in New York.

"I'd show up certain days and do guitar takes by myself, just me and the engineer," the guitarist said. "Some of the third album (2006's First Impressions of Earth) was done that way, but at least we were on the same page about what the arrangements and parts were. 75 percent of this album felt like it was done together and the rest of it was left hanging, like some of us were picking up the scraps and trying to finish a puzzle together." more on this story
