The much anticipated return from the Kings of indie cool - yes, Julian Casablancas and co. are back for the first time in 7 years for another Strokes record. Aptly titled The New Abnormal, sees the band create another mini-evolution on their sound - something they've done with each new record. They embrace the high-polish pop and electro tecniques whilst giving a nod to their guitar-heavier earlier records for a perfect mix of old and new.

The album's cover artwork is a painting called 'Bird on Money,' by famed artist Jean-Michel Basquiat.
