The Strokes – “Taken For A Fool” Video, Elvis Costello Collab B-Side

On July 26th, the Strokes will make an honest single out of Angles’ Elvis Costello-indebted “Taken For A Fool.” You may also remember that time the Strokes headlined MSG and confirmed the song’s Elvis influence by having him guest. That YouTube clip was shitty quality, yet a thrilling watch. You had to figure a pro-recording would surface eventually, and that it has in the form of “Taken For A Fool”‘s official b-side. If it wasn’t clear how crisp on point the Strokes were that night, or how perfectly Costello sounded fronting them, please enjoy the HQ recording, along with “Taken”‘s official new video directed by Laurent Briet, below:
