Listen: “Under Cover of Darkness,” the new Strokes single

Pin it

Not a week ago did we supply you with a thirty-second preview of the new Strokes single. Back in those days, we were cautiously optimistic about how the snippet might signal The Return to Form that everybody is demanding of the band. 

And here we are now, whole days into the future, with the Strokes' "Under Cover of Darkness" in its entirety

Form, consider yourself returned to! What a fun little ditty. Won't it sound just great as the soundtrack to your warm, drunken stupor through South By Southwest, or wherever you'll be when the weather gets nice again? Hopefully the rest of the album will hold up as well, because I'm going to need something to play at all the beach parties I'm going to get invited to come summer.
