The Strokes’s new album set for release this week

The Strokes‘ new album The New Abnormal is having its original release date, that is this Friday (April 10).

In an email sent to fans who have pre-ordered the album, the band confirms the release date, stating that “CD, cassette and merch orders currently remain unaffected and will ship as planned”.

The email adds, however, that “delays with vinyl production” mean that “there will be a slight delay with dispatching your order”. The vinyl version of The New Abnormal is now expected to dispatch from April 24.

The New York City band’s long-awaited album follows-up their last record ‘Future Present Past’ which came out in June 2016.
