Tonight on MySpace, in commemoration of the end of his nine-month tour in support of the excellent Yours To Keep, Albert Hammond, Jr. wrote a blog announcing something that will both either excite and/or enrage Strokes fans — the recording of a second Albert record! In October, Hammond will take to Electric Lady Studios “for five weeks” to record the Yours to Keep follow-up. An extra bonus for Hammond obsessives: he will be videotaping studio sessions and putting some of them on MySpace. Better send those Friend Requests! No word yet on a new Strokes record.

Check out our reviews of Yours to Keep, and yer man’s April 2, 2007 show at Bowery Ballroom.

WHEN THE MUSIC’S OVER……

……BUT NOT FOR LONG.

HI, THIS IS ALBERT
I JUST WANT TO SAY A BIG THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME OUT TO SEE ONE OF OUR SHOWS. WITHOUT THE FANS NONE OF OUR 128 SHOWS WOULD HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE. I HAD THE TIME OF MY LIFE THE PAST 9 MONTHS AND I’M HAPPY TO SAY THAT AT THE END OF OCTOBER WE ARE GOING IN FOR ROUND TWO. THATS RIGHT YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST, WE ARE GOING INTO ELECTRIC LADY STUDIOS FOR 5 WEEKS TO RECORD THE SECOND RECORD. A FOLLOW UP TO THE DEBUT “YOURS TO KEEP”. WE WILL BE VIDEO TAPING SOME OF THE RECORDING AND SHOWING CLIPS OF IT ON MYSPACE. BEFORE I FORGET I WANT TO THANK THE TWO BANDS THAT TOOK US OUT ON TOUR, INCUBUS AND BLOC PARTY. WELL I HOPE EVERYONE HAD A GREAT SUMMER AND FROM ALL OF US TO ALL OF YOU…..GOODNIGHT
LOVE,
ALBERT
