This Song: Hamilton Leithauser

Hamilton Leithauser is the former lead singer of the Walkmen and as well as a talented solo artist. Last year, he teamed up with former Vampire Weekend member Rostam for I Had A Dream That You Were Mine, and he also just released a duet with Angel Olsen called “Heartstruck (Wild Hunger).”  Listen as Leithauser talks about how Fleet Foxes’ “Ragged Wood” helped shake him out of a creative rut, what it was like to collaborate with Rostam, and how his latest single with Olsen was difficult for him to “get out of the shed.”
