Add another project to your Anticipated Albums of 2020 lists: while ringing in the new year at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, the Strokes announced they've got a new record on the way, and gave one of its tracks a live debut.
The new album would be the Strokes' first since 2013's Comedown Machine and second since 2011's Angles -- which frontman Julian Casablancas took some jabs at right before launching into the new material.
Here's how it went down: during the encore, fans were chanting "Angles! Angles!" hoping to hear something off an LP that probably brings up some frustrating memories for the quintet. “I don’t remember Angles. What’s Angles?” quipped Casablancas. "What about a new song? Yeah, we’ve got a new album coming out soon. If you didn't know about it, surprise!"
