The Strokes, who co-headlined Reading And Leeds Festivals last weekend, have recently spoken about the sessions for their new album, which bassist Nikolai Fraiture has described as like “therapy in a marriage”.

Fraiture told the Daily Star:

Some people are bringing in stuff, some are not. There aren’t so many finished songs but we have many parts. We try putting them together like puzzles and making them stick.

Fraiture added that the sessions will only kick up a gear when everyone has the time to hit the studio together, commenting:

What we do on our own is not the same as what we do together. We’re in a good place as a band right now. I feel like I’m at therapy in a marriage.
