Julian Casablancas To Release Latest Album On USB Lighter

casablancas.jpg

Julian Casablancas has just taken the term ‘MP3 burning’ a bit too literally...

In what could arguably be the most hipster friendly musical marketing campaign we’ve seen for some time, the Strokes frontman has released his latest solo record on USB-stroke-lighter for a special limited release.

Thankfully for fans of his last album - 2009’s Phrazes For The Young - who consider themselves more old fashioned, Tyranny will also be getting a release on CD, LP and regular digital download from 13 October.

He’ll also be embarking on a tour in the US from October and presumably further afield after that. At least we know fans won’t be left wanting for lighters to wave in the air.

If you're one of them, check out his latest promo video for the new album, below...
