It's been nearly five years since the Strokes released a new album, but the New York rockers may soon be ending that drought. Singer Julian Casablancas announced on his Twitter account yesterday that the band has finished recording the follow-up to 2006's "First Impressions of Earth."
"Still not going to be out for a few months -- mixing, etc., but JUST finally finished it yesterday actually!?" Casablancas wrote. The announcement arrives after the band's still-untitled fourth album has suffered multiple delays while being recorded in New York City.
The Strokes went on hiatus after the release of "Earth," with four of its five members releasing solo material in the downtime. The still-untitled fourth album, which is being produced by Joe Chicarelli (White Stripes, Minus the Bear), was preceded with a headlining performance at Lollapalooza last August.
