You may know Hamilton Leithauser as the vocalist and guitarist for the band The Walkmen, who are currently on “extreme hiatus” as of this year. But Leithauser had no intention of taking a break from writing, and thus recorded his first solo album, Black Hours, which is being released today. Leithauser recently stopped by Studio A to perform some of his new songs and to talk with me about the inspiration for the new album.
