A lot of other acts wouldn’t merit people losing their shit in order to get just a few seconds worth of new songs. But if it’s The Strokes you’re talking about, then 30 seconds of even one song is plenty. Now, though, fans can sample 30-second snippets of the entire Angles album, thanks to iTunes.

It’s the rest of the music world going bonkers.
Angles hits stores March 22nd via RCA.
