After Julian Casablancas revealed a joke album cover on his Twitter (and thankfully it was a joke), the band started revealing new songs, free downloads, the real album artwork and a full tracklisting.

They also made a television appearance, performing a few songs on Saturday Night Live:





But if you still want more and can't wait the 12 days, the band have also unveiled a few behind-the-scenes "making of the album" videos, which you can watch below.

The band play fight, start a table tennis tournament, and have a homoerotic sing song to Divinyls' 'I Touch Myself'.


The band try and lay down a rhythm section but get distracted by Jimi Hendrix and throwing flour in each other's faces.
