Julian Casablancas is out with the video to his new single ’11th Dimension’, the lead release from The Strokes frontman’s debut solo album ‘Phrazes for the Young’, out now on Rough Trade. Watch the Warren Fu directed video via YouTube below.
Julian Casablancas spoke with New York Magazine about his solo album ‘Phrazes For The Young’, released last year, that The Strokes frontman says wasn’t properly promoted by RCA. “They’re not the label I signed with. The people change all the time. They’re nice, they’re cool, but honestly they don’t do sh**.” Julian says he did most of the work through Cult Records, the label he started for Phrazes and financed himself, but the success wasn’t there. “You have all these dreams. I still like the plan, but it was executed terribly.”

Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme spoke with Billboard.com about Nine Inch Nails mainman Trent Reznor joining the group in the studio during the recording of its upcoming album ‘Era Vulgaris’, due June 12th. But their collaboration didn’t make it on the final cut. “We’re going to get creative about how that song comes out and where it goes,” Homme explained. Someone who did make it on the disc was The Strokes’ singer Julian Casablancas on ‘Sick, Sick, Sick’. “(Casablancas) is singing and playing a digital guitar,” Homme revealed. “It’s a lame looking thing, but it sounds really cool.” Yahoo.com has since removed the full article.
