The (former?) Walkmen frontman Hamilton Leithauser is getting ready for the release of Black Hours, his debut solo album, and he’s already shared his video for the Rotsam Batmanglij-produced first single “Alexandra.” He’s now followed that one up with an inky, low-key clip for “11 O’Clock Friday Night,” an album track that we’re hearing for the first time. The song has some of that elegantly rumpled Walkmen majesty, except with some added percussive flourishes, and Dirty Projectors’ Amber Coffman adds some barely-there backing vocals. Walkmen guitarist Paul Maroon, who’s also playing in Leithauser’s band at his forthcoming live shows, directed the video, in which Leithauser bikes around New Orleans at night. Watch it below.
The release of Black Hours has been pushed back; it’s now out 6/3 on Ribbon Music.
