The Strokes and Donald Trump

The Strokes‘ lead guitarist Nick Valensi has spoken about the band’s future in a new interview, joking that Donald Trump could produce their next album.
The group released their ‘Future Present Past’ EP earlier this year, but have not dropped an album since 2013’s ‘Comedown Machine’ – and have been working on the follow-up for quite some time.

Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple’s Beats 1 radio, Valensi said: “I love being in [The Strokes], I love the weirdness.”

He then went on to say: “Donald Trump is producing [the next album]… It’s the five of us and all our issues. It’s going to be awesome music. Julian is psyched about it. He’s very moody so if you have him psyched about music it means were on the right track.”
Of how their ‘Future Present Past’ EP came about, Valensi said: “We started to make a record and then thought well these songs are good so lets just put these three out. Maybe we’ll do it again.”
