Even if theoretically Pharrell did produce the album (as disappointed as I would probably be haha)
I think that the album would at least be worth a listen to.
Come on guys, "My Drive Thru" was kind of a catchy song. :)

Thank you, hardtoexplain, air_port, and jojowas!
The Strokes are not ignorant; and they have enough judgment to tell if Pharrell will rock or not. Just because his genre of music is different doesn't mean he won't appreciate and take into consideration The Strokes original style. Besides Julian Casablancas and Pharrell have worked together before when he produced the Converse Commercial. I saw a different musical style from Casablancas and I thought it was great. It shows his willingness to be versatile.
However this upcoming album may turn out, if you are a true Strokes fan, then you will appreciate why they are choosing to produce with Pharrell or not. Like jojowas said, "If they're not pleased with the sound, they will sack him."

There is no definite proof that Pharrell is going to produce the next album.
In all the articles I read it stated he wants to produce it, not that he is.
But i have heard a rumor lately that the band is suppose to somewhat go back to the sound of ITI with a blend of FIOE.
I'm trying to look more into that, though.

Hmm.. i think the strokes dont get caught up with the whole "maintsream concept" because today's hip hop sux. and hip hop just happens to be what pharrel turns bands into. OR so ive heard.
either way i dont give a fuck who produces as long as the strokes know what the fuck they are doing. CARELESS is what i dont want them to get to.

and i heard the album name was or might be "old attitude"??
i personally don't like it

NO NO NO .....Pharell will try to make the strokes hip hopish look what happend to Gwen stefani... she was cool in no doubt they were original and they ( she) just sold out totally. She did a 180 although she didnt want to holla back. She was ska like and now she is wearing hats backwards. How will that look on her vh1 special. Pharell should just make a new album with the NERDS.

Nikolai said that they are planning to start on thier fourth album in February of 2009 which makes sence because the nickel eye tour is supposed to be over at the end of january sooo.

and i am hoping there will be a tour!!!

and i dont know if pharell is gonna produce the strokes or not.

i second the notion of them getting back on the road. i stupidly didn't see them the last time they toured (i went on a concert fast), and i am now regretting it.
as for pharrell--who cares? it's the strokes; it's not like it's pharrell's album. i'm sure they'll be brilliant as usual.

If they're not pleased with the sound, they willl sack him
They fired the initila prod of ROF(Godrich?), probably under Julian's order :mrgreen: cos they didn't like the sound of the tracks
These guys have got some balls :P

[quote="hardtoexplain"]whats wrong with him being producer.
he likes the strokes. he probably wont want to change them in a bad way.
the strokes are smart, they wouldnt let it be bad either.
just cause its pharrell doesnt mean its gonna make the album all like the music he makes like in N.E.R.D.[/quote]

There you go.
I'm glad someone aroud here has some sense.

The great Ryan Adams should produce their next album.

Then again, I don't care who produces it, just get it out there man, it's long overdue, and they need to get back on the road!!!!!!!!!!

Pharelle would suck as a producer. Look what he did to nodoubt.

I think the strokes have tons of great producers they could have choose from.
I think it would have been cool if they just recorded it with out a producer as long as it sounds good. I mean shoot I go to school for media productions I could run the board for them and Mic the instruments or edit stuff on protools for them.

But i think that the strokes dont need a producer. So, maybe jack white could produce it. or better yet some mutt lange.

pharelle is a bad choice. is this new album going to be digital stroke hop.

I pray every night for the album NOT to be produced by Pharell!

whhhhhhhhaaaaaaaattt?!?!??!?! pharrell?! no no no!! he cant be the producer.. he will NOT be the producer... :evil:

He better not be producer.
