The Strokes are to release a new album in 2013.

The band's fifth studio album will be released later this year and will likely be preceded by the single 'All The Time', according to Billboard.

News of a new LP comes just hours after a US radio station claimed it had been sent a brand new Strokes track titled 'All The Time'. According to Seattle's 107.7, the station was sent the track by RCA records. "We'll have to 'leak' this soon. You won't be disappointed..." a post on its Facebook page read.

Last summer, NME confirmed that The Strokes were working on the follow-up to 2011's 'Angles'. Reports that the band had been working on new material at the famous Electric Lady Studios in their home city of New York were quickly denied by their management and record label.

However, guitarist Albert Hammond Jr's father revealed that the reports were true and the band were in the process of finishing up their fifth studio album.

Asked if the band were recording, Hammond Sr said: "Albert says that the stuff they're doing is incredible. They're doing it themselves with their friend, engineer and producer. He just says, 'Dad, it's incredible'."

When asked if he thought it would sound different from 'Angles', he said: "I don't think they'll go in a wildly different direction. Obviously the songs will be different, but I think The Strokes are The Strokes; they always will be The Strokes."
