    The collaboration of our dreams just became a beautiful, beautiful reality. Hamilton Leithauser has teamed up with Angel Olsen and their partnership exceeds expectations with their new song "Heartstruck (Wild Hunger)." The Walkmen singer's signature scream-sing is present and blends together perfectly with Olsen's also powerful voice, which adds a stunning dynamic to the song. The two sing over an orchestra which helps create a romantic, old time-y atmosphere. In a statement, Leithauser said of the song, "I thought 'Heartstruck (Wild Hunger)' should be delivered with huge passion and energy, and I needed a fierce and booming voice as a counterbalance. Luckily, I got my first choice: Angel Olsen."

    This also marks the first release via Glassnote Records. Leithauser's last record was 2016's collaboration with Rostam Batmanglij, I Had A Dream That You Were Mine, and he is expected to drop new music in 2018.
