Fab did it with Little Joy. Nickolai Fraiture did it with Nickel Eye. Albert Hammond Jr did it with Albert Hammond Jr and now after lending his voice to Homme and sneakers and authentic rappers, Strokes figurehead Julian Casablancas steps out on his own with a debut solo full-length.
The set spans eight songs, recorded in NYC, LA, and of course Nebraska, with production assists from Jason Lander and Mike Mogis. Whereas The Strokes are known for their stripped-down throwback rock 'n' roll, Casablancas' solo venture finds the singer experimenting with drum machines, synths and violins but still with that classic pop sound.
