The Strokes are working on their sixth LP, and Albert Hammond, Sr. (father of Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr.) dropped an exclusive in an interview with an Australian news outlet.

“They’re making a new album now with a great producer called Rick Rubin,” said the 73 year-old. “I speak to my son every day and he says that they’re so happy. I’m sure this will be a very successful record.”

Rubin is known for his work with titans including Johnny Cash, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Kanye West, Slayer, and Beastie Boys. His work with Johnny Cash in particular showed that the producer is capable of revitalizing the careers of legendary artists whose best work is considered to be behind them – a skill which could come in handy with the New York rockers.
