At their New Year’s Eve concert in Brooklyn, the Strokes debuted a new song and promised a new album in 2020. And now, they’ve taken to social media to tease something called The New Abnormal. An album title, perhaps? Unclear, but guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. posted the same teaser artwork on his own account with the following caption:
You think you’ve been waiting
But the wait has just begun…
The Strokes’ last album was 2013’s Comedown Machine. In 2016, they released the Future Present Past EP. On Monday, they’re playing a Get Out The Vote concert in support of Bernie Sanders. Check out the teasers for The New Abnormal below.
UPDATE: It looks like we might be getting a new Strokes single on Tuesday. In an early-shipped April edition of Q magazine, which hits shelves this Tuesday for some reason, a Redditor found a review of a Strokes song “out now” called “At The Door.” “Their trademark guitar rattle might be conspicuous by its absence, but the fuzzy, retro synths on the first taste from their forthcoming new album carry a lilting melody that mark the Strokes at their best,” the blurb reads.
