"The Strokes are nearing the finish line on their as-yet-untitled third studio album, due in late January via RCA. The group has recorded 14 songs for consideration, three of which were co-produced by longtime collaborator Gordon Raphael, while the rest were produced by David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Fiction Plane). Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Rage Against The Machine) will handle mixing.
The new album is the follow-up to 2003's 'Room on Fire,' which didn't stray far from the rambunctious rock'n'roll of the Strokes' 2001 debut 'Is This It.' But its sales dropped off significantly; 'Room on Fire' moved 563,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, while 'Is This It' has shifted more than 998,000."
