Strokes Working on Fifth Album?
If one of the members’ dads is to be believed, The Strokes are working on a new album. The record would be a follow-up to 2010’s Angles.
NME reports that Albert Hammond Sr. (father of Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr.) says the boys are back at work. “Albert says that the stuff they’re doing is incredible,” he said. “They’re doing it themselves with their friend, engineer and producer. He just says ‘Dad, it’s incredible.’”
Asked what he expected the album to sound like, Hammond Sr. replied, “I don’t think they’ll go in a wildly different direction. Obviously the songs will be different, but I think The Strokes are The Strokes; they always will be The Strokes.”
