Listen to New 11-Minute Song From Julian Casablancas + The Voidz

Julian Casablancas + The Voids
Emily Tan,

Finally, Julian Casablancas + The Voidz have unleashed the first full track off of their upcoming debut LP, ‘Tyranny‘, and just to forewarn you — it’s nothing like you’d expect.

With a run time of nearly 11 minutes, the song, entitled ‘Human Sadness,’ is a garbled mix of muffled, auto-tune vocals, video-game electronica and twisting guitar solos.  It’s essentially noise-rock, which fans may not be convinced is a good thing — yet — coming from one of the masterminds behind some of the most timeless, catchy indie rock classics like the Strokes‘ ‘Last Nite’ and ‘Someday’.

The new song is also different from anything off of the singer-songwriter’s last solo effort, ‘Phrazes For the Young,’ which was released on his own prior to him joining forces with The Voidz.

In fact, the vocalization and effects on ‘Human Sadness’ are more like The Strokes‘ latest effort ‘Comedown Machine’ — which hints more at this sound being Casablancas’ new direction.  You can listen to the track below:

The album is due out Sept. 23 via Cult and will be available on CD, most digital formats, cassette, vinyl and a pretty cool USB lighter. Get details on the release here.
