Listen: The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser shares new song “11 O’Clock Friday Night”

    The bad news? The Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser has delayed the release of his debut solo album, Black Hours, by one month and rescheduled dates for his upcoming U.S. tour. Instead of its original May 6th release, the album will now arrive June 3rd through Ribbon Music. The supporting U.S. tour dates will begin two weeks later on June 18th.

    The good news? Leithauser has unveiled the album’s second track, “11 O’Clock Friday Night”, which features Dirty Projectors’ own Amber Coffman. It’s a bit more mellow and contemplative than previous listen “Alexandria”, with Leithauser and Coffman harmonizing over a breezy combo of tropical guitars and pseudo-Calypso drums.

    Watch the accompanying music video below (directed by Walkmen guitarist Paul Maroon), which features Leithauser on a late-night bike ride during New Orleans’ Mardi Gras.
