Hamilton Leithauser and Rostam Batmanglij’s debut collaborative album I Had A Dream That You Were Mine is a delightfully great surprise. I’m not sure exactly why I wasn’t expecting much of the pairing because they’re both individually responsible with some of the best music of the last decade, but I am very glad it exists because it is truly stellar. The run-up to the album has included singles “A 1000 Times,” “In A Black Out,” “Sick As A Dog,” “When The Truth Is…,” and a transcendent late-night performance, and now you can stream the entire album via NPR below.
I Had A Dream That You Were Mine is out 9/23 via Glassnote. The vinyl for the record will be out a week early (9/16) — pre-order that here.
