Strokes fans around the world are looking forward to February, when the band mates have promised to meet up in New York, and get crackin' on their fourth album.

The plan is to write and record new music, then hit the road.

Last week we caught up with guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr., at a studio in Manhattan. Albert is currently working with the New York band the Postelles, producing their new album. We'll have a cool video of one of their sessions up soon, but first we wanted to give you a quick Strokes update.

"We're getting back together for the first time in two years, and it's very exciting," says Albert. "We're just going to start working on songs. I mean, sounds -- we don't even have the songs. We got to get back to playing first. That's all I know. Right now, it's just [b]February 11th at 2 o'clock[/b] we're going to the studio to hang out and play music. I just know the date and time."

he Strokes: 'We've started writing our fourth album'

Julian Casablancas has got cracking on new songs

The Strokes' frontman Julian Casablancas and guitarist Nick Valensi have started writing new material for their band's forthcoming new album, which they are set to start work on next month.

Drummer Fabrizio Moretti, speaking after a gig with his side-project Little Joy, told BBC 6music that although the band members had not finalised plans for their fourth LP's recording, the songwriting process had begun.

"Julian has started writing and Nick has got some material as well," he said. "We're the kind of band that it's not finished until everyone's in one room and everyone's got their parts perfectly. We're a very mechanical band."

NME.COM had previously revealed that the band would reconvene in February for album sessions. "I don't think it's a reunion," Moretti said, "we're constantly in each other's lives."

The band's last album was 'First Impressions Of Earth', released in January 2006.

Things seem to be on schedule for the recording of the Strokes' fourth album. Despite numerous side projects and other commitments, the five members are due to convene in New York next month, as planned, to start recording the follow-up to 2006's First Impressions of the Earth.

Talking to the BBC, Fabrizio Moretti said that Julian Casablancas and guitarist Nick Valensi are currently writing new material for the album. But, he explained, the five of them will need to work on the material together, "We’re the kind of band that it’s not finished until everyone’s in one room and everyone’s got their parts perfectly. We’re a very mechanical band."

Moretti also said that he hoped he'd be able to carry on with Little Joy while recording the new Strokes album, ""Hopefully time will lay itself down, not linearly, but in a mesh form so that I can slip through the holes and come down to the Little Joy timeline and jump back up to The Strokes timeline."

Asked when fans will be able to hear some of this new material, Moretti was noncommittal: "It might be in a couple of months, it might be in a year." [BBC]
