Paul Banks isn’t the only famous NYC-based frontman going solo of late: Strokes’ Julian Casablancas has announced a forthcoming solo tour and album. There’s a cryptic website of course, but for the handful of known facts, check out the press release below:
Julian Casablancas is wrapping up work on his debut solo recording scheduled for release this fall on Cult Records/RCA.
The eight songs were written and recorded over the last 12 months with studio work completed in Los Angeles, New York City and Nebraska. The project was produced by Jason Lader with additional production by Mike Mogis.
The album, entitled Phrazes for the Young, features all new material written by Casablancas. Track titles include: “River of Brake Lights,” “Glass” and “Ludlow St.”
Casablancas, a founding member of The Strokes, plans to announce a special series of U.S. dates shortly to be followed by a solo tour later in the year.
