Band debut duet with Regina Spektor in London...

THE STROKES were joined onstage by REGINA SPEKTOR last night.

As the band’s UK tour rolled into London for the first of two dates at Alexandra Palace, fans were treated to a special collaboration between their heroes and the new singer-songwriter.

Introducing her as “my New York sister”, Julian Casablancas shared vocals with Spektor on their new collaboration, ‘Post Modern Girls’.

Russian born but New York based Spektor is signed to Shoplifter Records, the label set up by Strokes producer Gordon Raphael.

Elsewhere in the hit-packed show, a delighted Casablancas referred to the UK as ‘my second home’.
