Pitchfork is saying the exact opposite: “…according to the band’s management, this is not true. The band are not working on a new album, and have not been recording at Electric Lady with Oberg.”

Tired of your one-way relationship following Julian Casablancas on Twitter? Tired of reading nothing but Jack-White-is-the-greatest-rock-musician-of-the-past-20-years-and-no-one-else-has-even-remotely-mattered “think pieces”?

Here’s some good news: Billboard reports that the Strokes are at work on a new album.

The band recently spent time at New York City’s venerable Electric Lady Studios, according to the story published this afternoon.

While 2011’s “Angles” marked a return to form for NYC’s modern day garage kings, it fell short of the band’s landmark first two releases, “Is This It” and “Room On Fire.” Nevertheless, many believed “Angles” to be a step forward from 2006’s “First Impressions of Earth.”

No firm details on the album’s title or release date yet, so here, to hold you over, is a trio of classic Strokes gems:

“Soma”

“Under Control”

“Take It Or Leave It”
