Another Strokes side-project to be released?

The Strokes’ drummer Fabrizio Moretti is to release an album under the name Little Joy on Rough Trade Records on the 4th of November.

The band looks like it features Moretti’s girlfriend (I’m sure ONE of you can tell me her name) and some friends. Interestingly, the 11-track LP will be produced by Devendra Banhart.
