Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij and ex-Walkmen vocalist Hamilton Leithauser have been working on a collaborative project, I Had a Dream That You Were Mine, that's set to be released on September 23rd. They've already shared some singles such as "A 1000 Times" and "In a Black Out" and now they've shared another track from the upcoming album, "When The Truth Is..." and it's a waltzy, doo-wop number that'll leave you yearning for the rest of the album.
The track is a narrative about Leithauser's journey down 17th Street after one too many beers - stumbling through graveyards, harbors and parks. With the twinkly piano keys, bottle slide guitar leads and longing (and at times, perfectly raspy) vocals, this is a song that'll tug at all your heart strings on this Friday. I think its safe to say, this album/duo was a fantastic idea and were pretty excited about it.
