The Strokes Scrapped New Album (Top Story)
As reported by Rolling Stone, the tracks for the yet-to-be-titled disc, which features 10 songs, are set to be mixed soon. "I'm positive that [fans] will be as excited as we are [about the new album]," Hammond says. "We're all really excited to be stepping into the next chapter. We spent the last six months recording in my studio upstate and we are beyond thrilled with the 10 songs we have for this record."
The album, which the band produced themselves with help from engineer Gus Osberg, will be The Strokes' first full-length disc since 2006's First Impressions of Earth. Reports of dissension within the group have surfaced regularly in recent years, but Hammond describes the mood in the band these days as upbeat. -
