The Strokes singer has produced the Californians’ new album
The album’s first single ‘I’ll Be Around’ has now been shared, ahead of the ‘City Club’ album being released on September 30 on Casablancas’ record label Cult Records.
The five-piece released their first album ‘Are You In Or Out’ in 2009, before releasing ‘Hung At Heart’ in 2013 and ‘Chinese Fountain’ in 2014.
They begin touring ‘City Club’ on Friday (September 16) in Las Vegas, with a one-off UK date at Brixton Electric on November 15.
Casablancas previously guested on stage with The Growlers during their set at Beach Goth festival in 2015. They covered Milli Vanilli’s 1989 hit ‘Girl You Know It’s True’ and The Doors’ 1967 song ‘People Are Strange’.
The Strokes released their recent ‘Past Present Future’ EP on Cult Records, whose other artists include Cerebral Ballzy, Har Mar Superstar, Songhoy Blues and Rey Pila.
Yeah Yeah Yeahs singer Karen O is also signed to Cult for her solo releases including her single ‘I Shall Rise’ from the soundtrack of Rise Of The Tomb Raider, while Casablancas has also released the ‘Tyranny’ album by his band Julian Casablancas And The Voidz.
The label is also notable for relasing a single, ‘Boy-Girl’, by Casabalancas with Savages singer Jehnny Beth, which was a cover of Danish band Sort Sol’s 1984 song.
