Ah, yes, The Strokes are done keeping us waiting. Not only have they recently revealed their first new song in half a decade, as well as the cover art, but we’ve already learned what song we’ll hear next. It’s called “You’re So Right”, and it’ll be coming at you two ways (three if you count the actual album).

Exactly one month before they hit Madison Square Garden, you’ll be able to grab the song on March 1st as the B-side to their “Under Cover of Darkness” 7” single. What’s more, according to XFM London, “You’re So Right” will come out on a special limited vinyl in support of Record Store Day on April 16th.

In related news, Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. recently teamed up with his legendary father, singer/songwriter Albert Hammond Sr. Sony Music is releasing Hammond Sr.’s Legend next month, and while most of the album features updated versions of his classics with special guests, the Hammond father-son team recorded a brand new track called “Changing Me”.

“I had a new song that fit very well with his style,” Hammond Sr. tells Undercover.fm, “a song that reminds me of The Beatles or Oasis, a song about the very current economic crisis. He plays the guitar amazingly and recording a duet with him was extremely important to me. It’s one of the most special songs I have ever done in my life.”

You can check out the track when Legend (complete tracklist below) is released in March. The Strokes’ Angles is due March 22nd via RCA Records. And don’t forget to support your local, independent record store on April 16th by grabbing some limited vinyl and music.
