Whatever ever happened (get it?) to the Strokes’ sixth album? Frontman Julian Casablancas and his whiskey-soaked, barbed-wire voice have touted the album multiple times since 2013's Comedown Machine, saying it would come out someday (get it?), but so far nada. Now, finally, we have some legit information: CEO of Victoria Records and avid Star Wars fan Victoria Morales-Kühne posted on Instagram a picture of her and the band (minus Albert Hammond), saying they were using her studio to record drums and rehearse. Her studio is located in Mexico, where the band is playing a local festival. All of which means a new album should be on the way! And if you can't wait for the new album to drop, here are the Strokes' 25 best songs.
