​Albert Hammond Jr. Clarifies His Dad's Comments About a New Strokes Record
Last week, Albert Hammond Sr. sparked excitement for fans of the Strokes, insinuating that his son's band were recording a new album with Rick Rubin.
 
Now, Albert Hammond Jr. has taken to Twitter to clear up the rumours started by his dad.
 
Hammond Jr. apologized and explained that the band aren't currently in the studio — though he did confirm that the Strokes' had met and played "a few music ideas" for Rubin. Apparently the meetings were just to "feel out a vibe," and unfortunately, "even a theoretical album plan would be years away, if at all."
 
Continuing the damage control, Hammond Jr. asked fans to forgive his dad for getting "prematurely excited," but maintained that the Strokes' future plans contain "a lot of unknowns" and there's nothing too newsworthy going on at the moment.

The Strokes' last full-length album arrived in 2013 with Comedown Machine. The band followed it up with the Future Present Past EP last year.
