The Strokes have today (March 25) revealed 'Fast Animals', the B-side to their new single 'All The Time'.

The track will be released on Record Store Day on April 20 as part of the seven-inch release of 'All The Time', and it again sees lead singer Julian Casablancas testing out his falsetto vocals. The song is a sped-up version of 'Comedown Machine' album track 'Slow Animals' and features as a bonus track on the Japanese version of the album. You can hear the song via Strokes fansite She's Fixing Her Hair now.

The Strokes release 'Comedown Machine' today (March 25). The album is the band's fifth studio album and their first since 'Angles' in 2011. Speaking about the possibility of The Strokes performing live in the near future, bassist Nikolai Fraiture recently explained that the band have no current plans to perform but that he is hopeful of working something out soon.

"I don't know. I would love to tour," Fraiture said. Discussing the making of 'Comedown Machine' at New York's Electric Lady studios, the bass player added: "We hashed it out all together like the good old days. It's a legendary studio and it is not far away from us all, apart from Nick who lives in Los Angeles, but he made the trip out to record."

The 'Comedown Machine' tracklisting is:

'Tap Out'
'All The Time'
'One Way Trigger'
'Welcome To Japan'
'80's Comedown Machine'
'50 50'
'Slow Animals'
