Industrious fans of Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas, who were also probably very good at finding Wally, may have uncovered the planned release date for the singer’s next solo album in a promotional video unveiled last week. Fans are now speculating the album may drop on 26th May.
Casablancas released his debut album as a solo artist, Phrazes for the Young, in 2009. Back in November, an overnight update to the singer’s website sparked rumours of a forthcoming follow-up, after visitors were suddenly greeted by a previously unseen set of graphics spelling out “Voidz.”
Voidz, it turns out, was a reference to Casablancas’ new backing band, whom the singer debuted along with a batch of new songs over the course of a number of surprise US shows, which followed the release of a new teaser for the upcoming album. The ensemble recently played SXSW.
Now, a new promotional video featuring VHS-quality footage introducing The Voidz and telling the story of how they came together with Casablancas, has fans buzzing. A scene screengrabbed by a fan on Twitter clearly features the digits “26.05,” which some think could be a release date hint.
