The Strokes are officially back
Over on the Rough Trade website you will find the above picture along with the tracklist for The Strokes fourth official LP, Angles (not angels with halos, but rather angles with degrees). Angles drops on March 21 in Europe and March 22 here in the USA. I don’t know about you kiddos, but I sure am excited. I don’t know how long I’ve been waiting for this, or wait, actually, I know exactly. It’s been 5 years! Anyway, here’s the tracklist:
1. Machu Picchu
2. Under Cover of Darkness
3. Two Kinds of Happiness
4. You’re So Right
5. Taken For A Fool
7. Call Me Back
10. Life Is Simple In The Moonlight
Lookin’ good right?! As stated on Rough Trade, “Under Cover Of Darkness” will be the first single bestowed upon us, but no word was given on when that single will drop. Hopefully very very soon. Oh, geez. So excited. Cue Le Tigre!
(UPDATE: No more than a minute after I posted this, The Strokes put up a new mini-site for information regarding Angles. To sum it up, “Under Cover Of Darkness” will be heard on the radio starting February (that’s only a few days away!) and more Spring tour dates will also soon be announced. Check out the mini-site, here.) Still cue Le Tigre, cause I’m so excited!

I’m sure everyone – or at least the core Strokes fans – dusted off the demos and rarities in the dry spell of Strokes material: “In Her Prime” is such a nice little gem.

Be Rad. Enjoy.
