In a world not exactly desperately waiting for a new Strokes album, news reaches us that causes a wobble:
I wanted to let you know that Julian Casablancas is readying his solo debut, Phrazes for the Young, scheduled for release this fall on Cult Records/RCA. Casablancas plans to announce a special series of U.S. dates shortly, to be followed by a solo tour later in the year.
There's a photo too - or a picture, or... well:
Uh... yes. The image is by Williams + Hirakawa. Yes.
It's due for release in the autumn, so expect a late-summer leak followed by a scrabbled-forward release date.
