Julian Casablancas, vocalist and
chief songwriter of The Strokes, has mastered his new solo album, "Phrazes for the Young," at Bernie Grundman Mastering with engineer Brian "Big Bass" Gardner. To celebrate the release, Casablancas performs a special series of shows every Friday night in November in Los Angeles.
The Strokes was formed in 1998 in New York City. They rose to fame in the early 2000s as leaders in the garage rock revival.
In addition to the new Cult Records album being available on CD and as a digital download, it is also offered as a luxury edition box set, which includes a 48-page classically bound storybook containing original and exclusive artwork, full album lyrics, B-side lyrics, "phrazes" and photographs. Each leather bound book is signed by Casablancas.
Also included is a DVD containing solo acoustic performances, an interview, the album trailer, and the video for "11th Dimension." One CD contains the full-length album, while a second CD includes five song demos from the album and three B-sides (demos available only in the luxury edition). The box also contains a 180-gram vinyl LP of the album.
