Albert Hammond Jr has announced a new solo album, ‘Melodies on Hiatus’

The news comes alongside the release of a new track, '100-99' featuring GoldLink.

Albert Hammond Jr of The Strokes has announced a new solo album is on the way. ‘Melodies on Hiatus’ will be released on 23rd June.

The news comes alongside the release of lead single ‘100-99’ featuring GoldLink.

Speaking about the track, he explains: “I grew up listening to 90s hip-hop, and I would always gravitate towards the melodic hooks in the songs I heard on the radio, specifically anything Dr. Dre was producing or rapping on. Years later, I noticed myself pulling from the style of those melodic lines in my guitar work, even though it wasn’t obvious to anyone else as I was so directly associated with being in a rock band. ‘100-99’ was something I’ve wanted to do for some time—work with a rapper over a beat and guitar part I wrote—and it’s really exciting that I was able to do it with GoldLink.”
