It’s been a long time coming: the fourth studio album from The Strokes, Angles – which fittingly comes out this year, the 10th anniversary of their seminal 2001 debut Is This It. The first track “Under Cover Of Darkness” is available to download for free over the next 48 hours via the band’s website. Not surprisingly, www.thestrokes.com has crashed under the pressure of hordes of internet trolling band fans smashing it. In the meantime you can have a listen to the tune below. It sounds very much like The Strokes, stadium-style.
Angles drops Friday, 18 March. Mark the calendar.
