    Strokes frontman's new collaborative project Julian Casablancas + The Voidz, is set to release their premier album, Tyranny, on 9/23: to hold us over until the full album drops, the first complete track, "Human Sadness", has surfaced. The song is unexpected, to say the least.

    "Human Sadness" doesn't feel sad, per se, in that self-indulgent, weepy, but ultimately temporary sort of way. Rather, it is raw, somehow desperate, and utterly unending. Rounding out at 11:00 minutes in length, the new track from Casablancas stands in stark contrast to his previous work; characteristically comprised of deliberate, catchy, tunes which resolve themselves in around a clean 3:00 minutes.

    With dreamy, distant, intergalactic vocals interspersed with psychedelic guitar riffs, "Human Sadness" is almost a soundtrack piece— something you listen to when you've gotten just a little too drunk a little too early in the night, and you find yourself alone in your apartment, killing time and eating leftovers while wondering what all of your friends are up to.

    Although at close listen the undercurrent of guitar and the muted, yet unmistakable, melodic wail distinguish the track as clearly Casablancas, "Human Sadness" marks a noted transformation for the prolific post-punk prodigy. But, worry not, sometimes change is good. Check it out, and decide for yourself:
