The Strokes to Offer First Impressions
Are the Strokes becoming rock’n’roll’s next space oddities? Strokes’ frontman Julian Casablancas told NME that his band’s third album, tentatively titled First Impressions of Earth, “[is] about how someone from outer space would objectively view things happening on earth.” The album is slated for an early 2006 release, but the first single from the album, “Juice Box,” is set to come out in November. Don’t spend all your money on Capri-Suns just yet, according to Julian: The title “Juice Box” doesn’t really refer to boxed liquid. “The song could be about a proper relationship, a casual friendship, or whatever you want, really,” said Casablancas. “It was originally called ‘Dracula’s Lunch,’ but I liked the sound of ‘Juice Box.'” There are no U.S. tour dates yet on the horizon for Casablancas and co., but the Strokes will be touring South America in late October.
