In our profile on the pre-hiatus Walkmen, one of the interesting future projects discussed was from Walter Martin. Martin had been working with the idea of developing an album of music for children, but not necessarily “kids’ music” because that can have a connotation of simplicity. What Martin wanted to make was an album of sweet, clever, and innocent music that was smart enough for adults, but would appeal to kids. Now that album, appropriately titled We’re All Young Together, has been announced along with the release of “Sing To Me,” a charming duet with Karen O. She’s not the only major guest to appear on the album as it also will feature Matt Berninger of the National, Alec Ounsworth of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, and O’s Yeah Yeah Yeahs bandmate Nick Zinner. Listen to “Sing To Me” below.
We’re All Young Together is out 5/13 via Family Jukebox.
