American rock and roll band The Strokes is growing up. They will on January next year release their as-yet-untitled third album via RCA Records, for which producer David Kahne went for a sound that is "a lot clearer and brighter. The vocals are up. David really taught Julian how to accept his voice and hear it over the top of the mix," said manager Ryan Gentles to Billboard.com earlier this year.
That's a bit about the album that offers bigger and more eclectic sound as well. The album's first single, "Juicebox," reportedly is driven by a heavy riff of Henry Mancini's "Theme From Peter Gunn" and an intense vocal performance from frontman Julian Casablancas, who repeatedly pleads, "Why won't you come over here?" Don't wait any longer just go get it.
