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."

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
