The Strokes’ Fab Moretti has said that the band are hoping to release their new album this September.
The New York band recently started sessions for their fourth album in their home city, with the drummer explaining that the group have made good progress, laying down the basic structure of the songs in the studio.
“We’ve been recording a bunch – basic tracks are done,” he told BBC Newsbeat. “Now we’re just running around like kids in a candy shop.”
Moretti added that he wanted the album out “hopefully around September”.
Speaking of the album sessions, he said that they were “pretty much a free for all – whoever has the best idea [contributes]… coming back in and writing music was kind of like riding a bicycle”.
The Strokes had previously revealed that they are working with producer Joe Chiccarelli on the album.
