A new Julian Casablancas track titled 'Human Sadness' has been unveiled online – listen to it below.

The song features on the soundtrack for US indie film She's Lost Control, which will debut at SXSW festival in Austin, Texas in March (2014). It is a collaboration with composer, and the film's executive producer, Simon Taufique.

Casablancas announced his involvement in the film back in 2012, when he promised to provide music to the project if it secured enough money to go into production. The Strokes frontman appeared in a video posted alongside the Kickstarter appeal, in which he said he will make the music as a favour to his friend, Taufique.

She's Lost Contro tells the story of a sexual therapist who teaches men to be intimate before falling for one of her clients.

The Strokes will make their live return at the Governors Ball in New York this June. The three-day event will take place on Randall's Island between June 6 and 8. OutKast were announced as the headliner alongside Jack White and Vampire Weekend. As well as performing with The Strokes, Julian Casablancas will also perform as a solo artist at the event.

The Strokes' last live show came in November 2011 when they performed live at the Planeta Terror festival in Brazil. The group have not played in the US since September of the same year. They have not performed in the UK since they headlined Reading & Leeds Festivals in August 2011. The band were joined by Pulp's Jarvis Cocker for a rendition of The Cars' 'Just What I Needed' during their Reading performance.

The Strokes released their fifth album 'Comedown Machine' last year but didn't tour or do any interviews. Speaking to NME recently, the band's guitarist Albert Hammond Jr said: "There might be times when we're not doing things but I don't feel like we'll ever stop," he said. "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."
