Listen to Albert Hammond Jr. on iHeartRadio 

The Strokes' new album Comedown Machine won't be fans' only chance to hear guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr. this year.  He's announced plans to put out a five-track EP in September via bandmate Julian Casablancas' label, Cult Records. 

The still-untitled set will be Hammond's first release since his 2008 album, ¿Cómo te Llama?  But this time around, Hammond is handling most of the instruments himself, with help from previous collaborator Matt Romano on drums. 

Gus Oberg is producing the project, which he also did for both the Strokes' Comedown Machine and its predecessor, Angles.
