Julian Casablancas of The Strokes and The Voidz, is teaming up with Jehnny Beth of Savages on a new song for their upcoming album.

While touring South America in 2014, Julian Casablancas and The Voidz played along side London based, Savages, at a number of festivals and struck up a friendship with Beth and the band. The recording will appear as a track on Savages upcoming release according to Noisey.

While still busy with The Voidz and a guest appearance on the upcoming Savages album, Casablancas also shed light on what the future holds for The Strokes, as they prepare for a string of upcoming festival dates:

“Here’s the thing, The Strokes, the relationship is good now. So I’m trying to do stuff to keep it alive, work on it, give it a chance.

It’s the first time we’ve been exclusively writing since Comedown Machine. We’re planning on recording stuff. I still think we could do cool things and I’ll do that. I’d like to do both [bands] really if I could.”

In the meantime, enjoy Savages:

Louder Than War - U.S. Editor. Los Angeles native and founder of Club Underground (L.A.'s longest running Post-Punk/Indie night), always looking for good music (new or old) to share/discuss.I love to read anything related to music regardless of genre so long as it is even remotely interesting. As a music fan and DJ, my interest in records started very early and my collection is filled with Indie, post-punk, new wave, northern soul, motown, glam, punk, brit pop with a splash of jazz, hip-hop and rockabilly sprinkled in.
