Comedown Machine, the new album from the Strokes, will be released on Tuesday, March 26, but you can stream the album right now on CBC Music. It's the New York band’s fifth album, and the followup to 2011’s Angles.

The Strokes haven’t announced any tour plans and have avoided interviews, but bassist Nikolai Fraiture recently described the process to the BBC as being like “the good old days,” saying, "We got off tour and we had these songs, some left over and some new. We rehearsed in Electric Lady and it was working so we went with it. It was touch and go for a while but we finished up at Electric Lady (recording studio) in New York. We recorded ten or 11 songs and there is other stuff floating around."

Comedown Machine is available for pre-sale from iTunes. Fans in Canada can listen to it in the player below, and below that check out the brand new video for the album’s first single, “All the Time.”
