Albert Hammond, Jr.: ‘New Strokes album for 2009’

Guitarist admits they need to make one next year

Albert Hammond Jr has declared that The Strokes need to record a new album in 2009.

He added that the public will think the band have broken up if they do not meet that deadline, having not released an album since ‘First Impressions Of Earth’ in January 2006.

Speaking to Teletext‘s Planet Sound, Hammond, Jr. said: “If we don’t make a Strokes record before that, people will think that’s the end of us.

“Nothing’s set, but we’re definitely figuring out something to do for 2009.”

The guitarist’s second solo album ‘Como Te Llama’ was released on July 7.
