The strokes don’t want to keep their fans waiting long for new music. The US rockers just released “The New Abnormal”. It had taken seven years for Julian Casablancas, Albert Hammond Jr., Nick Valensi, Nikolai Fraiture and Fabrizio Moretti to deliver a successor to “Comedown Machine”.
In an interview with “NME.com”, the front man now promises: It will take significantly less time until the new album. “I think we’ll be a little faster. We are currently doing well, ”reveals the singer.

“I’m personally very excited”
Besides, the relationship with producer Rick Rubin couldn’t be any better. “In theory, we should be able to work faster. It’s difficult to predict, but that’s my opinion, ”explains Julian.
Guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. can only agree. “Personally, I am very excited and would rather do nothing than make new music,” he enthuses. The “Reptilia” combo would hardly ever get along.
“A band is a strange thing. It is really positive that you can be together for so long and experience better times than before, ”says the artist. After all, it happens all too often that you diverge over the years. “It is just so exciting for me that there are five of you working together and everything is going better than ever before.” (Bang)
