Wake up, everyone! The Strokes seem to be planning a new album.
Bassist Nikolai Fraiture revealed as much in a post on the band’s official website [source: thestrokes.com>the band>Nikolai], stating: “I’d like to say that I’m still looking very forward to a fourth album release. We just need to work out a few technical kinks.
“It’s been a long break but much needed for us to remain together as a productive band.”
He also goes on to state that “in order to not go completely insane during this extended break, I’ve been working on some music, including some covers, which I will be posting soon”.
Reclining into non-musical areas, as DiS is wont to do, Fraiture has starred in and composed the music for a film shot with an old college friend. Entitled A Kind of Dream, the black and white short focuses on a couple of Arthur Rimbaud poems, (‘Ma Boheme (Fantasie)’ and ‘Reve pour l’hiver’), and can be obtained here for $9.99.
All proceeds go to the Bowery Mission and Fraiture is selling the shoes he wore in the short to raise money for landmine victims. Find a preview of A Kind of Dream below:
