Julian Casablancas will release his second solo album next year, according to this story, which is mostly about Julian promoting a new French cologne.
At the end, the writer just slips in a little bit about the release of Julian’s next solo record. (Forewarning: Stories like this are often wrong.

If it is true, is this something you’re excited about? More importantly, what type of impact do you think Julian’s second solo album will have on The Strokes?
