Enough with the scraps and teases: Here’s a full track from Tyranny, the first album by Julian Casablancas + The Voidz. Technically, Tyranny is the second record to bear Casablancas’ name, following 2009′s electrified jaunt Phrazes For The Young, but if “+ The Voidz” didn’t sufficiently explain that this is a brand new project, this song ought to do the trick.

The first thing you need to know about “Human Sadness” is that it’s 11 minutes long. The second thing is that those minutes mostly comprise noisy, impressionistic sprawl. Yes, the guy who made his name writing brilliant compact ditties built from carefully assembled moving parts is now letting it all hang out, for one song at least. His music has always sounded like it was darting through a grid, songs wildly whipping around sharp corners like the young speed demons navigating city blocks in “New York City Cops.” Even at his most groovy and relaxed, as on “Under Control,” there was a rigidity to a Casablancas composition. Each track had the feeling of a swaggering rock ’n’ roll machine. “Human Sadness,” then, is the ghost in the machine, freed from its box and drifting off into the stratosphere. It’s still recognizable as a Julian jam — that grizzled, golden howl; those gnarly guitar leads that suddenly show up seven minutes in; the bass part that casually but commandingly lopes around beneath the euphoric haze. Yet it’s also unlike anything he’s done before, shameless in its shapelessness.
