Regardless of the motivation, though, it seems likely that the Strokes will start work on their fourth full-length in the very early part of 2010. On his Twitter page yesterday bassist Nikolai Fraiture said he out looking for a studio with the band's manager, Ryan Gentles.
“While the guys are in LA, I went to scout some studios in NYC with Ryan today for what looks like Jan recording!!! mood = fucking excited!”
I have high hopes for this record, though I'm well aware everyone will say it's shitty even if it's not. [Gigwise]
