Julian Casablancas: 'New Strokes album has been a labour'
Julian Casablancas has said that The Strokes' new album has been a "labour" – but that he still thinks it will be "fantastic".

The singer gave a quick quote to XFM, hinting at a a tough recording process for the band's fourth album, expected next year.

"It’s been a labour!," he said. "It's all good. I was going to make a joke and say it was a labour of necessity, but no, it’s going to be fantastic."

Julian Casablancas was speaking at the T In The Park festival, where he played a solo show.

He recently said that the follow-up to 2006's 'First Impressions Of Earth' was about halfway complete.

The Strokes recently made their live comeback, headlining the Isle Of Wight festival among other events.
