The rumours, after all, were true.
New York City rockers the Strokes released a brand new song, “One Way Trigger,” a short time ago via their official website.
The propulsive track has less of the high-powered guitar strumming we’ve come to know and love from Albert Hammond Jr. It’s heavy on synthesizers, with lead singer Julian Casablancas deftly keeping pace with the frenetic keys, while hitting some high notes that would make Elton John (circa “Bennie & the Jets”) proud.
A few weeks ago, a Seattle radio station claimed to have received a brand new track, titled “All the Time,” from the band’s label, RCA Records.
As previously reported, the band are hard at work on their still untitled fifth studio album, which is expected to be released sometime this year.
