Pharell tells NME he wants to produce The Strokes next album

Replies for this Forum Topic

He's right. The Strokes have technically been mainstream ever since MTV decided to do the $2bill concert with them. And now everyone wants a piece of the action. They have signed for a major record label, and have had sold out shows for the past seven years.
They're like Beck, except Beck is more known here (US) then the Strokes are. But they are still pretty popular.

I just hope they don't get to big where they start playing huge venues and charge $60 a ticket.

What are you talking about "if the strokes go mainstream"?
Newsflash-the strokes have been on the cover of NME twice, the cover of Rolling Stone, dated celebrities, and had the #1 selling album on iTunes for five weeks. The last time the Strokes weren't mainstream was in the late nineties

y the hell would u want the strokes to b that popular?if they go mainstream im blaming u

I know I am late
But Pharrell producing the Strokes next record can be really good
It would boost there popularity through the roof.
It's not like he's going to rap in a song, I don't think Julian and them would allow that.
Pharrell is a professional and knows what he is doing when it come to porduction and music making. Maybe the sound will be clearer. Julian writes like all the songs, so I don't think Pharrell will write one for them.
Have you heard N.E.R.D.? That guy has a gift!

note that the track with santogold is only with Jules and not the complete gang of strokes.
It might sound very differently if pharrell produces with the strokes.
If it will sound positive or negative, I dont know.

yeah he would make ti soudns odd, although i like the track wiht santagold.x

WTF!?!? nooo!! pls!! damn nooo!! jesus...what the hell is going on out there!?! :shock:

:| Oh i dont know if that´s a good idea:... :S but i totally trust the strokes to dont let us down!! :]

i don't like change.

i think it would be awful if he'd be to produce their next album! really! please.... NO!!
they're so different, and pharrel is so... oh god no

NOOO! but since it's from nme... they aren't exactly known for giving the most accurate news.

it depends, what gender are you?

bad news.
well, he produced and co-wrote 2 songs of the last hives album, one of them was even quite good (well allright!), but if he produced the whole album... that would be terrible!
don't think the strokes would want him as their producer, though.[/quote]

i think they should try out a song and then go from there before doing anything hasty. i mean...he did good work with the hives so who knows.

pharell??...ok...idk about this...if the album sounds anything like julian's collaboration with santogold...i just hope not...

ohh no!
pharrell?
wtf is happening?

I hope they're not wrong....but we trust in them

Dude, I'm totally content with Gordon Raphael. But If the Strokes trust Pharrell, then I guess I trust him too. I trust the Strokes with most of the decisions they make. ;)
