The Strokes are set to release a brand new album later this year.

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."
