Albert Hammond Jr has said he can imagine The Strokes making 10 more albums, adding that he does not feel like the band will ever stop.

During an appearance on Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show last night (September 26), the guitarist premiered the first track from his new solo EP and spoke about the future of The Strokes with his host.

When Lowe compared The Strokes to Guided By Voices, Hammond Jr agreed, prompting the DJ to share his feelings that the New Yorkers are now becoming the band they always wanted to be - before adding that he can see there being "10 more Strokes albums" in the future.

Agreeing, Hammond Jr. said: "I've never felt more like that too. There might be times when we're not doing things but I don't feel like we'll ever stop. We've come to the point where we've been together so long and been through so much that why announce anything besides what we're doing? We're just together."

Hammond Jr previously revealed that a song on his new solo EP "floored" bandmate Julian Casablancas when he first heard it. He will release the solo EP, titled 'AHJ', on October 8. It follows his 2006 debut album 'Yours to Keep' and a second solo LP, 2008's '¿Cómo Te Llama?'. The new release was produced, engineered and mixed by Gus Oberg and recorded in Hammond Jr's own studios in Manhattan and upstate New York. Scroll down to hear 'Rude Customer' now.

The 'AHJ' tracklisting is:

'Cooker Ship'
'Strange Tidings'
'Carnal Cruise'
'Rude Customer'
'St Justice'
