The Strokes' Nick Valensi set to feature on new Sia album

Guitarist finally gets side-project bug

The Strokes' Nick Valensi set to feature on new Sia album
The Strokes' Nick Valensi has finally followed his bandmates with an extra-curricular music project.

While Julian Casablancas, Nikolai Fraiture and Albert Hammond Jr have all released solo records, and drummer Fab Moretti formed Little Joy, the guitarist had limited his efforts to photography rather than music while The Strokes took a break.

However, now Valensi has announced that he has contributed to the new album from Sia, entitled 'We Are Born'.

The new album from the vocalist, who appeared on Zero 7's 'Destiny', was produced by Greg Kurstin and will be released in the spring, followed by a gig at London's Roundhouse on May 27.

To check the availability of Sia tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.

Meanwhile, Valensi and the other Strokes are currently recording their fourth album in New York for a September release.
