The 4th Album Is Already Finished

Posted by isabella_racquel on

Isn't it?
According to Nikolai on "the band" link he said "we just need to work out a few technical kinks..." so wouldn't that mean they're pretty much finished just touching up?

yeah well so take a look at the last answer: http://www.nylonmag.com/?section=article&parid=1681

they don't seem to have a lot going on 'til atleast the end of the year :cry:

id guess that "a few technical kinks" translates to "we havent done anything yet"

no the band hasn'e been in the studio wrking on the album. think about it albert was making his second, nikolai was working on his project, as fabrizio was.technical kinks probably refers to contract negotians with RCA and Rough Trade, and things like figuring out who'll be producing. they won't begin working on the album until early 09, so the album won't be out for a long while.

[quote="isabella_racquel"][quote]I believe they are in the studio right now. My brother-in-law works in the music business and he said that they're all recording right now before Albert goes on tour for Como Te LLama. So hopefully late 08 or early 09[/quote]

Woah this is big news,are you totally sure?

Thats really good news but Albert contadicts that as said on NME...[/quote]

Yeah, I don't think this is right.
Cos Niko is recording as the moment, isn't he...?

if there are just a few things they need to fix that would be orgasmic....i want to of the strokes damit!

man i wish. in an interview with pitchforkmedia featuring albert hammond jr, he said the strokes haven't hit the studio yet for the 4th album. however we do get quite the consolation prize, GfC is a really promising single and yours to keep was excellent.

Albert's album has been finished for ages. I've had it for almost a month.

But on the topic, the other day in NME Albert said that they The Strokes are meeting in early 2009 to work out what they are going to do next.

So sorry, no album yet.

Como Te Llama is finished, it's scheduled for release on July 8th (?) last I heard. I've been jammin' to a leaked copy all day long, pretty good shit. Not as much "happy-pop" as his debut release, but still a head-bobber for sure! "Victory at Monterray" and "GfC" are my favorite tracks so far.

i think Como te Llama is done

I'm pretty sure they haven't recorded it because Albert has been recording and touring for Como te Llama?. I cannot wait though

[quote]fuckkk, i hate waiting but I guess we have to :/
atleast we'll get to see some Julian in that new summer ad for the Chuck Taylors
& Albert with his new CD
& Nikolai with his new CD

........... haha whos gonna make one next, Fab?[/quote]

Blahhh I know me too -____-
But at least they gave us reassurance that they actually are coming out with a 4th album.
Thank heaven.
I'd freak if they would stop making music.
Ughhh.
I don't want to even think about it.

[quote="iamacoconut"]Yeah, I agree with the album not being done until early 2009

=[

Totally agree with this being stressful as to not knowing when we'll have new material.[/quote]

Argg I thought that they would be done late 2008 or early 2009.
I think I heard that from someone, but I forgot who.

God I know.
I wish that they would just say that they're finished or they're barely starting or whatever.
Jeez there would be sooo much less stress on us(:

to be fair no one has a clue when the fourth album is coming out and in stroke like fashion no one will until about a month before they release it so questioning the meaning behind nikolai's cryptic comment is pretty useless. the suspense grows every day...

[quote="ddf"]what was my surprise when I saw a page about Albert Hammond Jr. in the french fashion mag named ELLE ![/quote]
thats cool! he does have pretty kickass fashion sense! :lol:

nah, i think he just meant that those are the reasons they havent started yet. but that they plan on doing so once they have the kinks worked out. they'd anounce if it was already done. :ugeek:

I think these are the only things that we know of for sure so far: Albert's album comes out in the beginning of July, he'll be touring from summer until winter, Nikolai's confirmed there definitely [i]will[/i] be a fourth album, and his solo project comes out in the fall.

I wish their official website would just give us a little bit of insight as to what's going on with the album. Think how much less worry and confusion there would be if they just told us something as simple as like "They haven't starting recording yet, but they plan to start in the winter" or something like that. And what I just said is NOT TRUE. I only made it up as an example.

Can't wait.

agree

I have heard that The Strokes will be going in to Studio this fall. And I think that when Nikolai said "technical kinks" He meant Jules needs to finish up on writing songs and Music.

[quote="ddf"]I actually heard a new song from The Strokes. It's called "fast forward", I hope it's not an old one which I didn't heard before...
if it's a new one I really love it.
[/quote]

Thats not a Strokes' song. The name of the band who recorded that song is Moptop or something like that.

i seriously want it to be out SO badly so i can see them when they tour slash i can listen to new stuff, not that i dont love their previous albums they just become kind of repetitive after a while. and to see them live would probably be the most amazing experience of my life...i will probably pass out. and i miss seeing them in interviews and in the media, theyre hilarious. cant wait for alberts new album though, gfc is awesome. but im wondering, if his new album is out in july, AND hes touring...when is he going to be in the studio with them? i need the strokes in my liiiife. love them

Does anyone know "Clear Skies" ? it's pretty good too. I can't wait for their come back in France.
oh and what was my surprise when I saw a page about Albert Hammond Jr. in the french fashion mag named ELLE !

Exactly, I mean I heard that even before, in 2007 that they were starting the album so I'm really confused.
And when Nikolai said "A few technical kinks" I literally jumped out of my chair and was like "FUCK YEAH!"
Hah,but like now I'm really confused because you can't really trust any of what anyone says because The Strokes aren't the ones saying it.
Annnnnd [b]I NEED THE STROKES![/b]
Nooowwwww :l

It would be ... so FANTASTIC, but i didn't understand "we just need to work out a few technical kinks..." that way.

I agree with Isabella Racquel,

I always thought he meant that they just need to fix some technical aspects of the recordings, mix the instruments, record some things again, polish, masterize, and that kind of thing. Given that they talked about working on the album over a year ago, they probably have most of it done - even if not recorded, already written and composed everything, and recording only takes some months. I believe the album will be out before 2009 - or better said, I hope.

The waiting is already too long. And the worst thing is that my body and my mind ask me for some Strokes, but if I listen to the other albums it makes me want to listen to new songs, so I can't listen too much to them these days.

I'm not quite sure what exactly Nikolai meant by "technical kinks" but I think what he meant was that they had to deal with some things [i]before[/i] they really hit the studio.

wooow u just gave me a slight heart attack......
don't do that anymore :twisted: :lol:

nah i dont think they have hit the studio yet
