The Strokes Finish New Album

The Strokes front man Julian Casablancas recently sent a tweet announcing that The Strokes’ 4th record is finally done. He does note, however, that the record still needs a few tweaks before it’s made available to the public. His tweet reads:
[The album is] still not going to be out for a few months – mixing, etc. But just finally finished it, yesterday actually."
The band had been working on the album since February, being joined in the studio by producer Joe Chiccarelli, who’s worked with U2, Bjork, and Beck among others. A month later, Casablancas noted that he had been adding vocals in the studio without the rest of the band to keep from interfering with the music. In a recent interview with ABC News, Casablancas said:
I'm pretty opinionated. Nothing pushy to the point of it's my way or no way, but I'll hear a song and be like, 'Hmmm, it feels like the bass should be like something different.' Whereas if I feel like I wasn't in the room then they could just kind of spread their wings.”
The new album will be the band’s first since 2006’s First Impressions of Earth.
