The Strokes Are Not Recording With Rick Rubin After All

In a recent interview, Albert Hammond Sr. let slip that his son’s band, the Strokes, were recording a new album with Rick Rubin. Except that’s not actually happening, according to the members of the Strokes. Albert Hammond Jr. took to Twitter to dispel the rumors, clarifying that “We met and played a few music ideas for Rick to feel out a vibe but even a theoretical album plan would be years away, if at all.”

That upcoming Julian Casablancas + The Voidz album is real, though!
