The Strokes announce new album ‘The New Abnormal,’ share “At the Door”
After confirming it on stage at Barclays Center on New Year's Eve, The Strokes have now officially announced their new album. It's called The New Abnormal, it was produced by Rick Rubin, and -- following the 2016 release of their Future Present Past EP on Julian Casablancas' own Cult Records -- it comes out April 10 via their longtime major label RCA. The album artwork (above) is a Basquiat, and the first single is "At the Door," which is on the atmospheric side but singing-and-songwriting-wise sounds like classic Julian Casablancas. Not a bad first taste. Watch the video and check out the tracklist below.
The Strokes also played a Bernie Sanders rally in New Hampshire last night and they debuted new songs during their set and covered the Talking Heads' "Burning Down the House." Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Cornel West, Cynthia Nixon, and others spoke at the event. Watch an archive of the livestream below.
