The Strokes Debut New Song In Maya Wiley Mayoral Ad

After a packed out show at NYC’s iconic Irving Plaza, The Strokes have debuted a new song in a Maya Wiley mayoral advertisement. Fans can hear a teaser of the new track titled “Starting Again” playing throughout the television advertisement. Cowriters Julian Casablancas and Gregg Alexander shared in a joint statement, “In an era of voter suppression and mega donors dismantling democracy, it’s crucial to remember New York City is too important to risk handing the reins of America’s most diverse metropolis to the same kind of party machine that’s controlled NY’s governance for most of the 20th century… one of Brooklyn clubhouse politics, big real-estate money, and mutual back-scratching. It is time we elect Maya as the city’s first woman mayor to make things better for ALL of our futures.”
