Lead singer of The Walkmen releases debut album ‘Black Hours’ on Ribbon Music.
In its orchestrated rhythms, dynamic vocals and generous production, ‘Black Hours’ speaks from one booming voice. Inaugurating a new chapter in an already remarkable career from The Walkmen frontman, the album brings Leithauser full circle and then some, from lonely midwinter piano-and-vocals sessions to a loud, live rock ‘n’ roll group and back again.
Performers on the album include Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend), Paul Maroon (The Walkmen), Morgan Henderson (Fleet Foxes), Richard Swift (The Shins / solo), Amber Coffman (Dirty Projectors).
Special edition deluxe double LP available exclusively to independent retailers, pressed on 180gram heavyweight vinyl. The second disc is a bonus four track EP. Packaged in printed card stock sleeves with a deluxe art booklet housed in a widespine LP jacket. MP3 download card included.
