Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. just dropped a track from his third solo album Momentary Masters. Entitled “Losing Touch,” the indie rock-tinged cut perfectly combines an energetic tempo with an edge of melancholy, which is exactly what we would expect. We haven’t been treated to a full-length album from Albert Hammond Jr. since ¿Cómo Te Llama? in 2008.
“Losing Touch” follows the lead track on Momentary Masters, “Born Slippy” (no relation to the Underworld song of the same name), which had a similar vibe. His new album, out this summer, will be preceded by a number of stints at music festivals with the Strokes, if you don’t want to wait to hear him.
LISTEN to the full track below to whet your appetite until Momentary Masters drops on July 31st, via Vagrant.
