The Strokes have just released a video for the second single from Angles, “Taken For A Fool”. Part of their comeback after five years, are fans still loving new material?
An initial peak caused by the release of single “Under Cover of Darkness” was followed by a bigger spike in listeners when Angles hit, with a befitting flurry of promotion including a Live on Letterman performance. Now however, weekly listeners appear to be returning to where they were pre-album.
They’ll be hoping that “Taken For a Fool” can create some buzz, and it appears that new tracks are holding their own against old, with “Under Cover Of Darkness” topping their weekly charts and reaching #3 in the six month chart above.
