Like I've said five billion times, the only good thing about the Walkmen's breakup is that all the members now have solo projects who are putting out records soon. Frontman Hamilton Leithauser's debut solo record Black Hours is forthcoming on June 3rd, and he's just released another single from it, "I Retired," which was co-written and produced by Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij, who took to Twitter to call it one of the best songs he'd ever worked on. It's one of our favorites we've heard so far from the record too, with a contemplative final third that reminds us of our favorite Walkmen songs. Lighters up y'all - stay tuned.
