The Strokes' frontman Julian Casablancas is set to appear on a comedy album, scheduled to be released on February 10.

The singer has teamed up with 'Saturday Night Live' trio The Lonely Island, aka writers Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone and cast-member Andy Samberg, to record 'Boombox' for the album entitled 'Incredibad'.

The trio have already made waves with their digital shorts for the TV show including 'Dick In A Box', featuring Justin Timberlake and 'Natalie Raps', featuring actress Natalie Portman.

In addition to breakout track 'Lazy Sunday', the record will feature appearances from Maroon 5's Adam Levine, T-Pain and Norah Jones.

The trio told Pitchfork that the Casablancas collaboration came about thanks to becoming friends with The Strokes after they performed on 'Saturday Night Live'.
