Tonight at Midnight, The Strokes will release the music video of “Under Cover of Darkness” to their website. The video is directed by Warren Fu who directed the video for “You only Live Once” and also worked with front man Julian Casablancas on the video of the single off of his solo album, 11th Dimension and Drummer Fabrizio Morretti with his side band, little Joy. In the past, Fu has also worked with bands such as Daft Punk and mark Ronson. from the few images that have been released from the video shoot thus far, the band is dressed up in suits with their instruments in what appears to be a church or old theater.
Earlier Today, The Strokes released the physical copy of their previously digitally released single, “Under Cover of Darkness.” with this release, the band included “You’re so Right,” another track off their forthcoming album, Angles, as a B-side. The new track has received mixed reviews, primarily because it does not sound like a typical Strokes song. The track contains elctro-processed lead vocals, chanting background vocals and heavily distorted guitars that are barely recognizable as The Strokes. though die-hard Strokes fans may not welcome this change, “You’re so Right” is still a top-notch song and shows off the bands great versatility as well as an incredible guitar solo.
The Strokes Fourth LP, Angles, is set to be release in the United States on March 22.
