Official lyrics to The Strokes ‘One Way Trigger’

Figuring out lyrics to Stokes songs has become quite a hobby for us fans.  I hope that the new record provides up with official lyrics but for now here are the unofficial lyrics

Thanks to various members over at Toxic Radio, commenters on this site and fans over at Tumblr for all their efforts.

One Way Trigger

One two, three

Get dressed in your bed
While she’s asleep
It isn’t right
But it isn’t hard

Tell me tell me won’t you understand
Show me show me show me a better plan
It’s summer lies
It’s someone else’s nothing
Here it comes now

You ask me to stay
You ask me to stay
You ask me to stay
But there’s a million reasons to leave

Find a job
Find a friend
Find a home
Find a dog
Settle down
Out of town
Find a dream
Shut it down

Please please don’t point it that way
It’s just a trigger that goes once
And you’ll be unafraid

I wish that I’d been noticed but it never goes that way
The silence that you brought has
Gone, gone, gone

Tell me, tell me, won’t you understand?
Show me, show me, show me

You ask me to stay
You ask me to stay
You ask me to stay
But there’s a million reasons to leave

Show me what to say
Show me what to be
Show me what to see
Show me what to be

Find a job
Find a friend
Find a home
Find a dog
Settle down
Out of town
Find a dream
Shut it down

I don’t wanna be in there with you
I don’t wanna be in there without loving your either
I waited for your thoughts
Can’t wait no longer

The Strokes are back with ‘One Way Trigger’

It what may well be the greatest surprise The Strokes have ever given us from out of nowhere the band posted a new song on their website!

And it wasn’t the song talked about last week All The Time but instead 4 minutes 1 second of a brilliant new track called One Way Trigger.

Still recovering from the shock of this really, it wasn’t what I expected at all. Julian’s high vocals somewhat stunned me as did the dance quality to it. But you know what this song is good, real good. As in I don’t want to stop listening to it, I actually want to get the loudest speakers in the world and blast One Way Trigger from it so that the whole world could dance along.

Listen to it below and sound off in the comments!

107.7 The End say the actual first single from the new album will be coming out soon, so yes this is a very good year!

The Strokes are coming back very very soon!

Only a week ago I updated saying there there was no news only rumours well it turns out the rumours that new Strokes material was imminent were indeed true!

Yesterday Seattle radio station 107.7 The End posted an update on Facebook

They have now confirmed the news on their website

As a few of you may have caught wind of, late yesterday we spilled the beans that we’d had the chance to preview new music from The Strokes. While RCA is keeping most of the details of the forthcoming new full length album (yes, you read that correctly) under wraps, we can tell you that of the two songs we heard, one was a more synth driven track, with the other (the aforementioned, “All The Time”) packing a classic strokes sound. No mention of a tour came up, but we can tell you, you’ll be hearing new music from the band sooner than later. More when we can share.

Eric from The Strokes News fansite also spoke to them

I’ve confirmed with Mike Kaplan, the Program Director at 107.7 The End, that “All The Time” is indeed the first single from the Strokes’ new album. Kaplan has also heard some of the other songs on the record — he said they all sound “amazing” and added that the fan base won’t be disappointed — and will provide advanced notice as to when 107.7 will premiere the first single once the station gets the green light from RCA Records . So, the album appears to be completed.

This is pretty amazing news right? We all longed for a new album this year but the long wait between FIOE and Angles taught me that I shouldn’t get my hopes up too much. Sometimes though the best kind of news is a surprise and I actually kind of prefer this sudden attack of new material rather than hearing about it months in advance.

No idea when ‘All The Time‘ will debut but I’m thinking sooner rather than later, this month hopefully!

Follow the site on Twitter and I will of course post the news when I get it.

No news but some photos added

So it seems like there is still no word on The Strokes next album, lots of rumour but nothing solid. Lets hope 2013 brings us what we all want, a new album and a tour.

I’ve updated the gallery with lots of candid photos of the band from late last year and more recently this week

Site news: an explanation on the lack of updates

I’ve had a few queries from visitors asking why the site hasn’t been updated for a while and well there is a simple answer for this – there is no actual news right now.

I tend not to post about any future album without it being confirmed – especially after the long break between FIOE and Angles which gave us a million rumours of a new record most of which turned out to be wrong!

For now all we have is speculation. This time last year Nikolai and Albert both hinted that a fifth record would be in the works early 2012. Fans have asked various people on Twitter like Albert Hammond Snr and Amanda de Cadenet and we have a vague idea that something is meant to be happening like now. Whether it is or not well The Strokes have always been very vague and secretive about these kind of things.

Here is the one thing we do know, Nick has been in NYC quite a bit lately and as far as I’m aware so have all of the other guys. So being in the same location is a start!

I know we all want a new album and this time a proper tour but I think we may have a wait until next year. Time flies already we are heading towards the halfway point of the year – the likelihood of a record completed and ready to go by 2012 seems incredibly low.

Though we may have no news about the new album The Strokes themselves have been doing things like Julian popping up in the 100th digital short on SNL or Nikolai performing with Mick Jagger and Arcade Fire 

So whilst this site may not be updated regularly it still stands and will rest assured will continue to.

x For the latest news/rumours/random Strokes bits and pieces then follow the site on Twitter.

x The gallery is regularly updated as well as the guys like to go to parties and events.

In the meantime there are always old interviews to read or concerts to watch.

To all those currently enjoying the summer, The Strokes will always be the perfect soundtrack. I’m off to crank up The Modern Age and enjoy the sun.
