The Singles - Volume 01 chronicles the best of The Strokes' material from around their first three albums: breakthrough Is This It (2001) and follow-ups Room on Fire (2003) and First Impressions of Earth (2006). The set faithfully replicates a batch of 7" singles, complete with picture sleeves, that came out in the U.S. and the U.K. - back when vinyl was far less a thing! - and almost all of which featured a non-LP B-side. (This is technically true of early track "Hard to Explain," whose caustic B-side "New York City Cops" was on early pressings of Is This It but was removed soon after the September 11 attacks.) In addition to the vinyl release, the collection will also be available digitally.
