The Strokes have unveiled the video for their new single ‘Taken For A Fool’ – scroll to the bottom of the page and click to watch it in full.

The track will be the second single to be taken from the New York troupe’s new album ‘Angles’. Earlier this year, singer Julian Casablancas admitted to scuppering writing sessions on a follow-up to ‘Angles’ because of a dispute with guitarist Nick Valensi, who had wanted to use songs the band had worked on together for a solo record.

He also spoke about tensions between he and his bandmates, revealing: “We do interviews and they point the finger at me. They're my such good buddies that everything is my fault. We should have called the album 'Frenemies'."

However, last month, bassist Nikolai Fraiture claimed that the band had started preparing new material and wanted to enter the studio to start work on the songs immediately. “If we could do it tomorrow, that’d be great,” he said when asked about their plans to record the follow-up to their fourth album. “But yeah, as soon as possible, I think”.

The Strokes return to the UK in August to headline this year's Reading And Leeds Festivals.
