The Strokes have finished their latest album.

The 'Last Night' hitmakers completed recording the songs which will make up their fourth, as yet untitled album, yesterday (11/16/2010), according to singer Julian Casablancas.

In reply to a question on twitter, he wrote: "Still not going to be out for a few months - mixing, etc, but JUST finally finished it yesterday actually!? (sic)"

The New York band's follow up 2006's record 'First Impressions Of Earth' was originally scheduled for the end of this year, but a number of delays in recording sessions have pushed it back to March 2011.

The band have previously admitted there had been a "disagreement" as to whether songs for the album - which they started writing tracks for in 2009 - were ready, and at one point Julian took himself out of the recording process to let his bandmates come up with ideas.

He said: "I'm pretty opinionated. Nothing pushy to the point of it's my way or no way, but I'll hear a song and be like, 'Hmmm, it feels like the bass should be like something different'. Whereas if I feel like I wasn't in the room then they could just kind of spread their wings."

The as-yet-untitled album was recorded with Joe Chicarelli , who has also worked with U2 and Beck, who has said the group constantly experimented during their time in the studio.
