Regardless of what you thought of their performance, The Strokes‘ headlining gig at Lollapalooza set them on a wave of momentum to continue on the path to rock and roll resurrection. And just how will Julian Casablancas and company utilize said momentum? With a Julian Casablancas solo project, of course. Well, that explains the new album’s delay.
According to Gigwise.com, Casablancas’ next project won’t take him to yet another alternate dimension; instead, the NYC crooner has dreams of heading to Citi Field. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Casablancas said he wants his next project to be writing a theme for the New York Mets. And in case you think it’s a joke or some kind of diversion, Casablancas added, “I’m totally serious – I have some ideas, I have to see if they like it.” Let’s hope they do.
