Yesterday we reported on the new Dirty Projectors album that will be released next spring, and it included a tidbit about a song called "Maybe That Was It" that was described as a response to the 2001 Strokes album Is This It. At least that's how it was reported in Longstreth's interview with Spin—but it turns out that Longstreth made a joke and the writer didn't get it. He posted the following on the band's Facebook page to clarify:

"maybe that was it" = not a diss track!! julian and i hung last winter, he's a cool dude and we actually might make some music together at some point. the song actually has nothing to do with the strokes' song -- that was just a random joke i made to the spin interviewer, but i guess he didn't get it and it became the headline of his article instead! --dave

In other words, no feud here. But Adam Levine and those Fox News guys still definitely don't like each other. [via Pitchfork]
