Seattle radio station 107.7 are today claiming that they have a leak of the new Strokes single. The station have posted the following two statements on their official Facebook page:

"Previewing brand new Strokes 'All The Time' thanks to RCA Records. We'll have to 'leak' this soon. You won't be disappointed."

Follow up: Spoke with RCA Records again this morning after we were fortunate enough to hear some new tracks off their upcoming album. The first official radio single will be "All The Time". However we can't comment on release dates just yet. Soon enough though...

The news comes after the band's record label denied that the band was working on a new album earlier this summer. As NME reports though, guitarist Albert Hammond Jr's father revealed that the reports were true, and offered the following comment on the record:

"Albert says that the stuff they're doing is incredible. They're doing it themselves with their friend, engineer and producer. He just says, 'Dad, it's incredible'."

Hammond Sr. also stated that the album would not sound wildly different from 2011's "Angles":

"I don't think they'll go in a wildly different direction. Obviously the songs will be different, but I think The Strokes are The Strokes; they always will be The Strokes."

    Cool, I was really into Angles. Hope to hear this soon.
    For me, Angles was brutal to listen to. I hated pretty much all but 4 of the tracks on it. I really hope what they do next is different from the direction they took for that album. Regardless, I love this band and I'll get it anyway.
    Many Strokes fans found Angles quite different and not to taste compared to their other material. The main reason most probably being that It was the first album where Julian didn't mastermind and write the whole album. Everyone had an input into the songs on this album where as Julian thought up every single note in the past.
    i totally get that songs like games are just awful to me but machu pichu was ok under cover was great gratisfaction theres a few but like you said thats really it
    Look forward to hearing this, and I'm fine if it was similar to Angles. It was a great album and had a great sound to it.
    "Is This it" was really awesome, but after that they recorded only few good songs.
    Angles was terrible, hopefully the new stuff will be better but history suggests bands follow whatever direction they chose so there may be no going back to the good stuff.
    I listen to 1077 everyday, it's pretty cool to see them get such popular response
