Robert Plant spoke to Rolling Stone about his upcoming solo still-untitled solo album that will arrive in September.

Speaking to NME, Albert Hammond Jr. gave fans more of a tease of what is in store for The Strokes. The band are making their live return next month at Governors Ball and the guitarist alluded that it could lead to more. He said, ""I'm really excited because it's always exciting when it gets decided we're going to do a show. There is something building. I don't know anything or am hiding anything. I'll literally do the show and I know that usually when we do that we end up with something. I know that we had this song that we recorded a long time ago and Julian never sang on. I can't imagine we wouldn't do it."
