The Strokes - The Strokes Start New Album

The Strokes have started work on their next album.

The New York band are in the studio in New York working on the follow up to last years 'Angles', with producer Gus Oberg.

Gus worked on some of the tracks on 'Angles' - which was largely self produced - and has previously worked with guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. on his solo material.

The 'Hard to Explain' band - which also includes Nick Valensi, Fabrizio Moretti, Julian Casablancas and Nikolai Fraiture - have previously said they wanted to record a quick follow up to their fourth album.

Albert said last year: ''We have songs that you can tell are gonna be good ones that we're all excited to play.''

The group took a long break between third album 'First Impressions of Earth' in 2006 and 'Angles' and Nikolai admitted there was a strange feeling when they first met up to record .

He said: ''When you get back together there was a lot of weird energy flowing around. There are different dynamics in the group in different ways.''

The recording of 'Angles' was also fraught, with Julian admitting at one point he took himself out of sessions for the record and initial work with Beck producer Joe Chiccarelli ditched in favour of the band recording themselves, but the album was well received.
