The Strokes' Albert Hammond Jr has announced that he will release a new EP this year on bandmate Julian Casablancas' label.

Speaking on Har Mar Superstar's 'Nocturnal Emotions' podcast, the guitarist revealed that the five-track EP will be released in September via Casablancas' Cult Records. It will be his first solo release since 2008's '¿Cómo Te Llama?', which followed his solo debut 'Yours To Keep' in 2006.

Hammond Jr plays most of the instruments on the EP, which is currently untitled. Matt Romano – who worked on his previous solo releases – will be on drums. Long-time Strokes collaborator Gus Oberg will be on production duties.

Meanwhile, it was recently announced that The Strokes' Nick Valensi is collaborating with Brody Dalle on her forthcoming solo record. The former frontwoman of The Distillers and Spinnerette has been recording her first solo album in California and recently posted a picture of Valensi on Instagram and thanked him for his playing, writing: "Thank you Nicky Valensi for the radass guitar".

The Strokes released their fifth album, 'Comedown Machine', in March.
