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.
