The Strokes are reportedly set to release a new single titled "All the Time," with Seattle radio station 107.7 The End posting on their Facebook that they've scored the cut from the band's label, RCA.

While nothing has been confirmed, The End's message read: "We'll have to 'leak' this soon. You won't be disappointed." The track could appear on an expected fifth Strokes studio LP, which the band denied they were working on last summer.

After the release of their last record, Angles, bassist Nikolai Fraiture told Rolling Stone the Strokes were already working on the follow-up. "We're trying not to lose momentum by taking time off and then having to reboot the whole system," Fraiture said. "Hopefully, we keep that up."

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
