The hottest act in New York City from the turn of the century have finally announced when they may be releasing their long-awaited fourth album this year. The band has not released an album since their 2006 release “First Impressions of Earth”. The album still has no title and it will be a lot more collaborative than previous albums. In a recent interview with The Chicago Tribune Julian Casablancas confirmed that the band would be one of the headlining acts at this year’s Lollapalooza. This is what Casablancas said about the new album:
“I think it’ll be out in September. I’ve written a lot of melodies for it, but the other guys have also contributed a lot more: melodies, choruses, parts. It’s way more collaborative. So it’ll have a different feel than our other albums.”
He also commented on the fact of how their hiatus has affected the amount of money offered for them to play:
“We’re getting the biggest offers of our career. It feels great, because I remember people writing things like ‘We’ll see if they’re still around in 10 years’ when we first came out.”
