New York-based rockers The Strokes will be releasing a new album this year. The group's reps confirmed to Billboard on Thursday that the band will be releasing their follow-up to 2011's “Angles” album.
Before Billboard confirmed the story, Seattle radio station 107.7 The End created commotion around the new Strokes album, claiming they heard the group's first single from project titled “All the Time.”
"Previewing brand new Strokes 'All the Time' thanks to RCA Records. We'll have to 'leak' this soon. You won't be disappointed… -mike," reads the station's message on Facebook.
It sounds like The Strokes first single from the new project will be released soon. In the midst of playing the festival circuit in 2011 for the “Angles” record, the group was already recording music for this upcoming record. Billboard further reports that The Strokes recorded with producer Gus Oberg last year.
“Angles” was released in March 2011 and has since sold 221,000 copies in the U.S. Their upcoming fifth studio album will be released later this year.
