Who doesn’t love surprises? “All The Time,” the new single from the Strokes that was hinted at back in January, has finally arrived today, almost a week before its official release date on February 19.
“One Way Trigger,” the first single we heard off of Comedown Machine, was a mildly experimental synth-pop song that defied expectations of what most people expect from a Strokes song. But with “All The Time,” they’ve returned to form. The song follows the classic formula of what makes a solid garage-rock song: great chords, catchy hook and some attitude. That’s it. This song will probably get longtime fans (or wayward Strokes-agnostics) re-excited for Comedown Machine, which comes out March 26 via RCA. Listen below.
