The new song by The Strokes is a dreamlike wonder of a thing
The iconic New York band release their first album in seven years this April. First up, brand new single 'At The Door'...
Having delivered an incredible time machine of a performance at Electric Picnic 2019 - complete with frontman Julian Casablancas pissing people off - The Strokes are very much back and in rude health.
On Monday night, the band performed at a rally for US Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, during which they played a couple of new songs and officially confirmed that their new album would be dropping on Friday 10 April.
Tuesday brings the news that the album - their first since 2013's Comedown Machine - is named The New Abnormal and boasts the legendary Rick Rubin as its producer.
But you're here for the new song, right?
'At The Door' marks the first single, and it's quite beautiful and strange and dream-like. That's the official JOE verdict after five listens in a row on repeat, at least.
