It turns out the rumors are true. Julian Casablancas, solo artist, is coming back.
Chile and Argentina both announced their lineups tonight, and Julian is high up on the bill for both festivals. It seems like, given that he’s so high up on the bill, he’ll be armed with new material at that point. I would expect a new album from him to be released (via Cult Records) at some point between now and late March, but that’s only a guess.
Lollapalooza Chile takes place from March 29-30, and Lollapalooza Argentina takes place from April 1-2.
UPDATE: Julian is also slated to play Colombia’s Festival Estereo, which will take place from April 3-5.
