Casablancas wrote and orchestrated every musical detail on the album from polyrhythmic drum beats to harmonizing guitar solos. Highlights include the first single, "11th Dimension," which Spin heralds as "quite possibly the catchiest song any Stroke has ever recorded," while Billboard calls it a "pop-rock gem." Check it out now:
Composed of eight post-rock tracks, the record was written and recorded over the last 18 months with studio work completed in Los Angeles, New York City and Nebraska. The project was produced by Jason Lader with additional production by Mike Mogis.
