The Strokes have just released their first new album in seven years

Oh, it’s a damn fine day today.

Julian Casablancas, Nick Valensi, Albert Hammond Jr, Nikolai Fraiture and Fabrizio Moretti have broken open this new chapter with confidence and catapulted back into our music-loving hearts with The New Abnormal, their first new album in seven years.

Marking their sixth studio album, the highly anticipated record features previously shared tracks ‘Brooklyn Bridge To Chorus’, ‘Bad Decisions’ and ‘At The Door’. Recorded at Shangri-La Studios in Malibu and produced by Rick Rubin, the album as a whole is a testament to the band’s growth over the last few years.

Of the album, Associated Press raves, “a superb slice of indie rock, varied, exciting and complex, with elements of glam, straight-down-the-line rock and dreamy pop”, while Under the Radar praises, “the most vital and consistent the band has sounded in over a decade.”

The New Abnormal is out now via Cult/RCA/Sony Music Entertainment Australia. Check it out below.
