Strokes to Release Album in January

By: SPIN Staff // June 2, 2005

For those of you waiting with bated breath for the next Strokes album to hit, you can exhale: According to Billboard.com, the third studio album from the New York City boys will arrive in January. Manager Ryan Gentles told Billboard that the new album will be a lot “trickier,” and that lead singer Julian Casablancas has learned how to “accept his voice.” Now he just has to work on accepting the fact that one of the producers of the new album, David Kahane, used to work with Sugar Ray. We promise it won’t ruin your hipster cred, Julian. The band also plans to tour in the weeks leading up to the album’s release date. For more info on the Strokes, visit thestrokes.com.
