For the New York mayoral election, renowned New York band The Strokes have been placing their support behind candidate Maya Wiley. Back in May they performed an acoustic live stream even in support of her and brought her out for their recent gig at Irving Plaza, along with superfan John Mulaney and congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Today, the group have shared a preview of a new song “Starting Again” in an ad for Wiley. The track was co-written with New Radicals’ Gregg Alexander and co-produced with David Kahne. In a press statement, Julian Casablancas and Alexander said: “In an era of voter suppression and mega donors dismantling democracy, it’s crucial to remember New York City is too important to risk handing the reins of America’s most diverse metropolis to the same kind of party machine that’s controlled NY’s governance for most of the 20th century… one of Brooklyn clubhouse politics, big real-estate money, and mutual back-scratching. It is time we elect Maya as the city’s first woman mayor to make things better for ALL of our futures.”
