The Strokes Live Debut New Song "The Adults Are Talking"

The Strokes made their live return last night after two long years with a performance at The Wiltern in Los Angeles that was in benefit for Foodcycle LA and The Center in Hollywood. During their lengthy, 20-song setlist, they incorporated the live debut of a brand new song, alongside older hits, some which hadn't been performed in over a decade.
The new track is called "The Adults Are Talking" and it came seven songs in. It's their first new musical output as a group since their 2016 EP Future Present Past. Watch them perform the mid-tempo indie track in a fan caught video, below:

The set started with "Heart in a Cage" and then went into "You Only Live Once." By the third song, they dusted off "Ize of the World," which hadn't been performed since 2006. Some deeper cuts for the OG fans included "Meet Me in the Bathroom" and "I Can't Win," both which were performed for the first time since 2011! They also did "The Way it Is" which saw the stage for the first time after 13 years.

Another live debut came later on in the set of a cover song - Erasure's "A Little Respect." Other hits they weaved into their setlist included "Hard to Explain," "What Ever Happened?" "12:51," "Soma" and "Last Nite."
They also gave a two song encore that carried sing-a-long staples "Is This It" and "Someday." Check out the full setlist below:
