    Default The Strokes' Julian Casablancas to release solo album

    From NME.com


    The Strokes' Julian Casablancas to release solo album - exclusive

    Singer set to release 'Phrazes For The Young' this autumn

    The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas is to release a solo album, NME.COM can exclusively reveal.

    The singer is currently finishing working on his first full record outside the band ahead, with a release pencilled for the autumn. A trailer for the album can be watched below.

    The record, called 'Phrazes For The Young' was recorded in Los Angeles, Nebraska and Casablancas' home city, New York.

    The album was produced by Jason Lader, with additional production from Bright Eyes' Mike Mogis.

    Tracks slated for 'Phrazes For The Young', include 'River Of Brake Lights', 'Glass', and 'Ludlow St'.

    Casablancas - who issued the illustration pictured - is set to play a "specials series" of US dates, ahead of a solo tour later in 2009.

    I'm excited to hear this album, but it's making me think that the new Strokes album is never going to happen.

    The Strokes said they were in the studio in April or something. I'm sure they will release something eventually. Hopefully they play Coachella 2010.

    Albert's 1st solo record is head and shoulders above anything else the rest of the band has put out since the last Strokes record.
    7/30 - Shabazz Palaces - Roxy (?)
    7/31 - Hamilton Leithauser - Echo (?)
    8/01 - Ceremony/Nothing - Roxy (?)
    8/06 - Herbie Hancock - Hollywood Bowl (?)
    8/07 - Haim - Wiltern (?)

    I think the music in that trailer sounds cool. I bet it's even better with his vox box turned on over those shapes.

    if they were in the studio during that time...wouldn't that make them a non starter for Coachella?

    They've been in the studio since last February 2009. The album is supposed to be released March/April 2010, which makes them a very likely candidate to play Coachella 2010.

    Totally agree with this.

    I sooo hope the strokes will be at coachella but it seems unlikely. Alberts albums were really good. Fab and Nikoli were ok lets hope that julians is as good as alberts or better.

    The bad news: The album has been pushed back until November.

    The good news: shows in L.A. every Friday in November.

    Looks like I'll be heading south next month!

    PHRAZES FOR THE YOUNG COMING IN NOVEMBER

    PHRAZES FOR THE YOUNG will be released on November 2 in the UK and November 3rd in the US. To celebrate the release, Julian will play a special series of shows every Friday night in November in Los Angeles. Show details will be announced here shortly.
