Former Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas’ mercurial penchant runs deep. A sonic chameleon, Casablancas’ new outfit,  The Voidz, have now released their most jarring sonic juxtaposition to date — one that serves as prelude to their new LP set for this spring.

“QYRUYYUS” is the second track off The Voidz forthcoming album, and according to Apple Music‘s tracklist, the track will follow “Leave It In My Dreams,” not to be confused with the fake tracklist Casablancas recently teased on Twitter.  Though the new track isn’t off-putting in its erratic range of influences, it does mark one of the most eccentric arrangements Casablancas has released to date.

The Voidz’ has detailed their new LP Virtue is set for release March 30 via RCA.

Julian Casablancas releases new Voidz track ‘Leave It In My Dreams’

Former frontman of the early augthts rock ’n’ roll institution The Strokes, Julian Casablancas formed The Voidz, previously known as Julian Casablancas + The Voidz, in 2013. Dance music fans might recognize Casablancas from his appearance on Daft Punk‘s Random Access Memories cut  “Instant Crush,” one of the standouts from the duo’s incredible LP.

As The Strokes’ work together began to fizzle throughout the later 2000’s, Casablancas channeled a more progressive sound in his work with The Voidz.

“Leave It In My Dreams” is The Voidz’ latest tune and it’s modestly reminiscent of The Strokes’ early 2011 track “Someday.”

The Voidz have announced their second album, a follow-up to their 2014 debut, Tyranny, is due out this year via RCA and Casablancas’ own label, Cult Records.
