The Strokes have just released a brand new song called “Bad Decisions,” which appears on their upcoming album, The New Abnormal, which will be released on April 10th via Cult/RCA Records. It will be their first record in seen years.
“Bad Decisions” follows the first single, “At the Door,” which received it’s debut during a performance at a recent Bernie Sanders campaign rally at the University of New Hampshire.
For “Bad Decisions,” though, the single arrives with a music video directed by Andrew Donoho that stars The Strokes themselves. The video is set in the 1970’s, in which the band stars in their very own infomercial/T.V. special. The video’s upbeat tone doesn’t last forever, and eventually turns into a disaster — watch for yourself below.
The New Abnormal was recorded at Shangri-La Studios in Malibu and was produced by Rick Rubin. The album artwork, which you can find below, is a painting by Jean-Michel Basquiat, Birds on Money.
Ahead of the album release, The Strokes will play a run of special shows in the U.K. North America, and Europe. Check out all of the details below.
