Strokes Unleashes New Single “Under Cover Of Darkness”

February 8, 2011
By Brendan Mehan

The Strokes has announced that the first single off its upcoming album, Angles, will be available for free for a limited time from the band’s website. Starting tomorrow (February 9) and lasting 48 hours, the song “Under Cover Of Darkness” will be available to stream and download for free. It will also hit radio that same day.

“Under Cover Of Darkness” is set to make its radio debut tomorrow night on Zane Lowes’ BBC Radio 1 program between 7-10pm, UK time. Zane will also apparently be interviewing one of the members of the band, however, exactly which member it will be is still a mystery. The radio program should be available online and remember, England is five hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time here in the US. Angles, the band’s first new release since 2006, will be out March 22 via RCA.
