New: Albert Hammond, Jr. - GfC

So, here’s a taster of what the upcoming release of Albert Hammond, Jr’s new record, ¿Cómo Te Llama? will sound like:

|mp3| Albert Hammond, Jr – GfC

The song is pretty fucking fantastic, but have we ever expected less of Albert? However, after a couple of listens, ‘GfC’ does suggest a different take towards Albert’s previous workmanship, it’s a more polished production that results in a song which borders mainstream music. Not even Albert’s raggedy, howling vocals nor the Strokesy riffs could compensate for the shiny finish, save for the poignant guitar hooks that appears towards the end.

Still, the song does sound promising, and if it’s any indication to what the upcoming album is going to taste like, than I couldn’t be more excited.

And for the record, I don’t know whether Julian will or should or is feeling threatened, but this just proves how much the two needs to collaborate, especially in that fourth album. I mean, can you imagine how massively great the music will be?

¿Cómo Te Llama? comes out on 7th July with a digital release on 17th June.
