The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas has posted a bizarre picture on Twitter which he claims is the band's new album cover.

On Twitter user said: “Urm doesnt really suit the music style isnt ? But it's your album, u can choose whatever cover u want.”
Another added: “Are you kidding, right? anyway its your album and you can choose.”
