Strokes' comeback single 'Under Cover Of Darkness' streaming online
Listen to a snippet of the New Yorkers' new effort

A snippet of The Strokes' comeback single 'Under Cover Of Darkness' is streaming online.

The song sample is streaming at Amazon.com, while the cover art for the new track, revealed first by the online retailer, is pictured.

The site lists the single as set to be released this month - although NME understands that the song's release schedules are set to be finalised next week (beginning February 7).

'Under Cover Of Darkness' is the first song to be taken from The Strokes' new album, 'Angles', set for release on March 21. It'll be the New York band's first album since 2006's 'First Impressions Of Earth'.

Check back for the release date of the new single, expected to be announced soon.

I am so happy, I think the clip sounds AMAZING! There is a part of that snippet (the line: won't that be a puppet on a string) that sounds like Last Nite if you listen closely. Thanks ckgirlbr

Free single available tomorrow, psyched!

Under Cover of Darkness will be available as a free download from the official site tomorrow at 19:35 UK time (a handy world clock for different time zones)

It will be free for 48 hours then available on the usual sites like ITunes and Amazon.

Zane Lowe will also be playing it tomorrow on his show which airs on Radio 1 19:00-21:00 UK time and talking to a member of the show. You can listen to Radio one across the world on their site

UNDER COVER OF DARKNESS REVIEWED IN ROLLING STONE
The lead single from the first new Strokes record in five years barrels into the bar with “Return to Form” written on its forehead. “Under Cover of Darkness” (set to be released February 9th on the band’s website) takes the basic elements of their sound, breaks it down, builds it back up and expands it: the skinny-tie boogie bounce of “Last Nite,” wave after wave of cute and sharp interlocking guitar, and a grand, gaping chorus where Julian Casablancas torments his vowels like he’s got them trapped in his secret basement laboratory. The band members even throw in tricky tempo changes and a weird, slow breakdown just to show us they’ve been woodshedding. “I’ve been all around this town/Everybody’s been singing the same song for 10 years,” Casablancas observes. So the Strokes give us that same old song one more time, primed and polished for a new age.”

Other fans are saying you have to wait for the e-mail to arrive.
