UNDER THE RADAR: Vampire Weekend’s Rostam, Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser Share New Song “A 1000 Times”.

Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij and the Walkmen’s Hamilton Leithauser have shared “A 1000 Times,” a collaborative track under their new project Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam. Listen to it below. It’s the latest collaboration between the two: Rostam was a prominent player on Black Hours, Leithauser’s solo record following the Walkmen’s split.

Earlier this year, Rostam discussed the record in an interview with Pitchfork:

“I’ve also been making a full-length record with Hamilton Leithauser, which I’m very excited about. Our plan is to release it as a duo, basically, and every now and then I get a feeling that it might be one of the best records I make in my whole life. We worked really hard on lyrics and every song tells a story. In some ways, the more that I write songs, the more I feel that telling a story is the most important thing; just being able to close your eyes when you hear some lyrics and go somewhere. It’s worth taking the time to do that, because people respond to it.”
