    Hamilton Leithauser recently stopped by The Strombo Show to play a couple songs off of his latest record, I Had A Dream That You Were Mine, which was released in collaboration with Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij. He played two songs off the album, "The Bride's Dad" and lead single "A 1,000 Times," as well as a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Came So Far For Beauty." Strombo also interviewed Leithauser, and at one point he talked about his influences which included Cohen, "When I was 14 years old, I found the cassette tape that my dad had of The Best Of Leonard Cohen and that was the first time that I really connected with what felt like a guy in a room with a guitar. Top 40 radio, I probably listened to a lot. For some reason, the quiet calm way that he did "Susanne" - probably the first song that I got into. That has always been something that stayed with me as something to aspire to... Its deceptively, sounds so simple that it is easy, but you learn as you try to do it - it is not..."

    Listen to the cover around the 40:15 mark HERE and on a more silly note, also check out Baeble Bae Alert: The Oh So Dreamy Hamilton Leithauser.
