The Strokes Tease Something Called The New Abnormal
The Strokes have teased something called The New Abnormal. Earlier today (February 7), the band posted a silent video featuring artwork for the new project on their social media accounts. The artwork appears to be taken from a 1981 Jean-Michel Basquiat piece titled “Bird on Money.” Find that below.
The Strokes’ last studio album was 2013’s Comedown Machine. In 2016, the Strokes released the EP Future Present Past. More recently, they debuted a new song called “The Adults Are Talking” live. On February 10, the group will play a rally for Bernie Sanders in Durham, New Hampshire, before kicking off a handful of North American gigs.
