Video: Hamilton Leithauser (of The Walkmen) – “11 O’Clock Friday Night”

In the midst of an “extreme hiatus” from The Walkmen, frontman Hamilton Leithauser has been at work on his solo debut, Black Hours. Previously, Leithauser shared “Alexandra” with us, a jangly, fast-paced tune from the forthcoming LP that you couldn’t help but feel good about.

Today, Leithauser released the video for another new tune, “11 O’Clock Friday Night,” a rockier, nocturnal track with hazy guitars, and slapping percussion. In the video, Leithauser takes a late-night bike ride through New Orleans during Mardi Gras, offering a colorful, intimate portrait of the city.

However, the release of Leithauser’s video was also followed by some unfortunate news: the release date for Black Hours has been pushed back from May 6 to June 3. When it is out, you’ll be able to grab the album via Ribbon Music.
