An update at TheStrokes.com on Monday (Feb. 1) said the New York quartet were in the city's Avatar Studios working on their follow up to 2006's 'First Impressions of Earth'.
A return to work for the Strokes confirms that the band are back on good terms. After some internal squabbles in recent times, singer Julian Casablancas (pictured) said in January, "I think we're fulfilling the promise of what we said we were: actually being a unit that really works on everything."
The long-awaited fourth album from the band has been hinted at for some months, with bassist Nikolai Fraiture dropping hints on his Twitter page in November that a new LP was overdue, and forthcoming. Now it seems, with Casablancas and Albert Hammond Jr putting their solo careers away for a while, 2010 might be a good year for the Strokes. They are scheduled to play this year's Isle of Wight Festival and Rock Ness Festival, both of which take place on the weekend of Jun. 11 - 13.
Chicarelli's impressive track record includes working with the White Stripes, Counting Crows, U2, the Verlaines, the Shins and My Morning Jacket. He also engineered several Frank Zappa albums.
