The Strokes front man has peddled a four minute preview of his forthcoming solo LP Phrazes Of The Young, which will now be released on 11/3 via Cult/RCA.
We're all itching to see what Casablancas brings to the table, after First Impressions Of Earth disappointed and Albert Hammond Jr. had two enjoyable solo efforts of his own. Phrazes sounds a bit more electronic than previous Strokes related work, but it promises to be full of hooks.
At 8 songs, it is a bit short, but as many have observed already, we'd all rather have just the good stuff instead of filler tracks to round it out. Remember, This Is It was only about forty minutes long. At least the previews alone have made up for that awful Converse campaign. -joe puglisi
Tracklist for Phrazes For The Young:
01. Out of the Blue
02. Left & Right in the Dark
03. 11th Dimension
04. 4 Chords of the Apocalypse
05. Ludlow St.

UPDATE: "River Of Brakelights" is streaming in it's entirety on the website! It was totally one of the previews we liked best, and the song is pretty schizophrenic. Go see what we mean.
