Julian Casablancas frontman for The Strokes is getting ready to drop his debut solo record 'Phrazes for the Young' Nov the 3rd in the States, Nov 2nd in Europe. The first single from the album '11th Dimension' is pretty sweet! Uber catchy and fun single! Much for synth laden than I'm used to hearing from The Strokes. Don't know how the rest of the album will be, but I hope it goes somewhere in the direction of this single. Why do a solo album that is exactly like your main band anyways right? Never understood why some artists do that.
Anyways here is that plus a little Q & A I found with him on youtube. No video yet, but I'm sure it will be a good one when they finally release that. Seems they are also working on a New Strokes record as we speak. Scheduled for a 2010 release. 2010's shaping up to be another great year for music!
