The Strokes have announced that the name of their upcoming album will be – “Angles”. In an interview with Rolling Stone, the band stated “Angles” represents the first time that the band have had an equal part to play in all aspects of the recording process.
Albert Hammond Jr said that the name comes from the fact that the songs come from “five different people” as opposed to Casablancas handling the writing individually.
Nick Velensi said that the album is the first where they worked “truly democratically” and that this new found democracy was the reason for the delay.
“Angles” is set for release on 22nd March.
