It’s been a while since The Strokes treated us with new music, but it seems like the band is still in the business of making songs as they debuted a new track during a recent live show.

American rockers played charity show benefiting the homeless at Los Angeles’ The Wiltern on Monday night and slipped a brand new track, supposedly titled “The Adults Are Talking,” into the setlist. While there is no official recording of the song available, several fan-made videos emerged on the internet.

Most of the videos are bad in quality, but the first impression is that the song has all the marks of The Strokes’ classic. Watch one of the clips below.

The Strokes’ latest full-length album came in 2013 when they released Comedown Machine. The band decided not to promote the album at all and withheld from interviews, television appearances, and tours. Three years later, they followed up with four-track EP Future Present Past. It remains to be seen whether a new album is in store following the debut of the new song.

After taking two years hiatus from performing live, The Strokes will be quite active in 2019 and are scheduled to appear on several festivals in Europe, the UK, and the United States. This includes sets at New York’s The Governors Ball Music Festival 2019 and Lollapalooza 2019 in Chicago.
