“Out of the Blue” (Live on Letterman) (Video)

    The future of the Strokes may be unclear, but that’s not stopping singer Julian Casablancas from promoting his Phrazes for the Young album. He showed up on David Letterman’s show last night (Jan. 6) to perform a version of “Out of the Blue” from the record.


    Backed by a full band and clad all in leather, Casablancas seems more animated than when he’s fronting the Strokes, although his group of assorted session musicians makes for an odd contrast. And sensitive listeners beware: there’s an incredibly cheesy guitar solo around the 2:15 mark.
