The Strokes
NEW MUSIC FROM THE STROKES

New album coverhey guys,

it sure has been a while. lots going on these days…

first off, the new album. it’s got a title (Comedown Machine). it’s got artwork (see right). it’s got a release date (3/26 in the U.S. and 3/25 in the U.K. for other international release dates, best to check your local media for upcoming news). you can also preorder it in the band’s store. head over to thestrokes.com for more.

next up, the single…

the first official single is called “all the time” and we’ll have it ready for you on 2/19 when it will be available as an instant download for anyone that preorders “Comedown Machine” @ iTunes or the strokes store.

hopefully you’ll be hearing it on the radio before then though. if not, call your local radio stations and ask them to play “all the time”… they’ll have the track in house by valentine’s day, but probably not before.

last but not least, free music

Free Downloadthat’s right, free. in case you haven’t heard, last friday, we posted a free song from “Comedown Machine” atthestrokes.com. it’s called “one way trigger”. it won’t be free forever so go download your copy now or you’ll have to wait for the full-length album to come out soon.

oh, and if you’re one of the new folks to join our list through this promo, now’s probably a good a time as any to say “welcome!” from all of us. so, welcome! you’ll be hearing from me plenty more as we get closer to 3/26, though i think that’s just about enough for now.

in the meantime, all news can be followed at thestrokes.com

until next time…

Revered early-‘00s New York rockers the Strokes surprised fans by releasing a new song today (January 25), “One Way Trigger,” offering it as a free download on the band’s official website.  

Bearing little resemblance to the band’s spiky, angular hits like “Hard to Explain” and “Juicebox,” the new song features a jaunty synthesizer riff and unexpectedly light, falsetto vocals from the band’s singer Julian Casablancas. Closer in tenor to Casablanca’s 2009 solo album, Phrazes for the Young, “One Way Trigger” eschews the Strokes’ trademark downtown grit for something much catchier and poppy, especially considering the song’s main melody striking a strong resemblance to A-Ha’s ‘80s smash hit, “Take on Me.”
