Published Feb 08, 2011Our excitement about the new Strokes LP is reaching a fever pitch. We've already learned that it will be titled Angles and that it will drop on March 22 via RCA. Now, we know when we'll all be able to heard the first single, "Under Cover of Darkness."
The song, which appears third on the album's tracklist, will be released as a free download from the Strokes' website starting tomorrow (February 9). It will only be available for 48 hours, and it will hit radio the same day.
"Under Cover of Darkness" will be officially available to purchase digitally on February 15. Amazon released a 30-second snippet of the song as a preview, which you can hear embedded in the video below.
Angles is the follow-up to 2006's First Impressions of Earth. A press release says that the new disc "marks the ambition of that album [First Impressions of Earth] with the immediacy of the band's earlier albums." Sounds good to us.
