The Strokes have begun work on the follow-up to the 2011 album ‘Angles‘, reports Billboard.
Billboard claims The Strokes have been in New York’s Electric Lady Studios recently with producer Gus Oberg, who previously mixed parts of the ‘Angles’ album. The fifth studio effort is set to be the band’s last with RCA Records.
After fractious recording sessions resulted in a series of delays for ‘Angles’, The Strokes made clear their intention to begin work on new material as soon as possible in a bid to consign the problems which dogged their fifth record to the history books.
Last summer, as early work began, bass player Nikolai 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.”
“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.”
