“We are slowly but surely working on an album,” he recently told the magazine. “I don’t know when it’s going to be released, we’re kind of just in writing sessions. We’re writing. I’m actually in New York at the moment, at a studio in New York for that.”
The band is following up their three-track EP, Future Present Past, released earlier this year. Their last full-length album was Comeback Machine in 2013.
Valensi recently said that The Strokes were aiming for a 2017 release.
"If I start saying a lot now, people get too excited,” he cautioned during an interview with NME. “Then there's all this hype you've got to compete with, and that's not fun. If anything, I'd rather just pull a Beyoncé at some point next year and just drop shit."
Valensi’s new band, CRX, will release their Josh Homme produced debut record, New Skin, on October 28.Reuse content
