Walkmen singer Hamilton Leithauser is prepping a new solo project in Los Angeles with a hefty list of collaborators, including members of Vampire Weekend, the Shins and Fleet Foxes. The LP is expected to be released in Spring 2014, Pitchfork reports.
The group of artists is working at Vox Studios in L.A. and includes Rostam Batmanglij from Vampire Weekend, Richard Swift of the Shins and Morgen Henderson from Fleet Foxes and Cave Singers, in addition to the Walkmen's guitarist and pianist Paul Maroon.
Swift posted a montage on Instagram of the musicians busy at work in the studio, but hasn't released any material featured on the album, which has yet to be titled. The Walkmen released Heaven, their seventh studio album, last year.
