“They’re making a new album now with a great producer called Rick Rubin,” he told The West Australian. “I speak to my son every day and he says that they’re so happy. I’m sure this will be a very successful record.”

It’s exciting news for Strokes fans, the band released the three track EP Future Present Past in June of last year, but haven’t released a proper studio album since 2013’s Comedown Machine.

Rubin has worked with an extensive list of A-list musicians including the Beasties Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, JAY-Z and Johnny Cash, to name just a few.
