The Strokes announce new single details

’Juicebox’ is tipped to be the first track lifted from the band’s third album…

THE STROKES’ first single to be taken from their eagerly awaited third album is rumoured to be ’JUICEBOX’.

The track is expected to hit the radio in mid-October and the video for the release, regardless of which track is finally selected, is set to be shot in September.

According to, it is also believed that the follow-up to 2003’s ’Room On Fire’ will come out in the States on January 24, meaning a January 23 UK release.

As previously reported on NME.COM, singer Julian Casablancas described the sound of the new LP in a recent interview with the ’Alone, Together’ fanclub, saying: “”Some things on the drums are going to be tricky. And Albert (Hammond Jnr) may have to mimic two rhythms at times, but it’s all do-able. It’s not like we have a lute and a harp and it’s going to be there live. There’s delay on it. I never liked it, but now it’s sort of everywhere on the record.”

He added: “Not crazy 80’s reverb, just enough to give a lot of the instruments space so it sounds fuller, bigger, and louder, and what I used to call ‘more professional’.”

The Strokes are currently mixing 14 tracks with producer Andy Wallace in New York. Songs set to appear on the album include ’Vision Of Division’, ’Razor Blade’, ’Ask Me Anything’, ’Heart In A Cage’, ’Everything Sun’, ’You Only Live Once’, ’Killing Lies’, ’Eyes Of The World’ and ’Fear Of Sleep’.
