The Strokes will deliver new music next week with a new four track EP ‘Future Present Past’ on the way.
The EP has three new songs ‘Drag Queen’, ‘OBLIVIUS’, and ‘Threat of Joy’ play a remix of ‘OBLIVIUS’.
‘Future Present Past’ was recorded over the last year in Austin and New York with producer Gus Oberg. The Strokes are coming to work on more new music from a new album.
The EP will be released on Cult Records, the new indie label by Julian Casablancas. Casablancas personally heads the label featuring a catalogue of The Strokes, Julian Casablancas+The Voidz, Albert Hammond Jr., Karen O, and more.
“The ultimate goal is to turn Cult into this time machine that exists to make sure that bands like the Velvet Underground can be more popular and appreciated in their time vs. twenty years later,” Casablancas said. “I hope it can help deliver a supportive audience that makes cool and important art more commercial. It’s kind of super ambitious, but my long-term dream is to create connections between all the cooler, more underground radio stations, record stores, thrift shops, zines and blogs, and artists and fans to be part of a more unified thing.”
The Strokes ‘Future Present Past’ will be released on June 3, 2016.
