Albert Hammond Jr discusses Strokes future
Albert Hammond Jr has been discussing the future of The Strokes.

His solo album ’Yours To Keep’ is released in the US today (March 6), after being released in the UK last year. And Hammond Jr admits the future plans for his band are vague at the moment.

He said of The Strokes: “I think all the guys are just hanging out and doing life things.”

He said he wasn’t sure when the band would reconvene to record a follow up to 2006’s ’First Impressions Of Earth’.

When asked he said: “I have no idea. I always get in trouble when I speculate about stuff. So I have zero clue. If I did know I would tell you, though.”

Hammond Jr also revealed he had written a film script.

He told Pitchfork: “I wrote a script with a friend based on a book…but a lot of what I see in my head isn’t on paper, so we’re trying to figure that out - but once again, there’s no time.”

On tour in the US he will play:

California The Belly Up (March 5)
Los Angeles El Rey Theatre (6)
San Francisco Popscene (8)
Denver Marquis Theatre (10)
Dallas Gypsy Tea Room (13)
Houston Meridian (14)
