CRX – the rock group headed by The Strokes’ guitarist Nick Valensi, dropped their new track “Broken Bones” today! Taken from their forthcoming debut, New Skin, which was produced by Queens of the Stone Age’s Josh Homme, the song is full of swagger. The album drops on October 28th via Columbia Records.

“One of the coolest things for me is that I began making this record as a vehicle to get onstage,” says Nick Valensi, “but along the way, it started to feel like we were working on something more special than that. I’m excited to be singing and having a lot of fun with it, and I’m really enjoying the feeling of having to work hard to win people over. It’s like being a kid again – like everything is new and kind of scary but irresistibly fun, too.”
