Albert Hammond Jr has shared a video for Muted Beatings, a track from his new album.

The Strokes guitarist will put out 'Francis Trouble', the follow up to 2015's 'Momentary Masters', on March 9. It was inspired by the stillborn death of his twin brother, Francis.

The video, meanwhile, was shot on 35mm film and stars actress Portia Doubleday. Speaking about it, Hammond Jr said:

“I followed Fraser into the abyss. He had a real vision he expressed by saying ‘Love is the one thing that transcends time and space.’ I felt like he was moved by the song and knew how to capture it visually.  I understood what he meant but to me the love didn’t represent human connection. I knew It would be the most universal way to show it visually but I found myself realizing the cycle of who I was and what I was about to become, with the death of my old self and the birth of this new person, was what transcended time and space. That love for life, that lust for life is forever reshaping itself.”

Albert Hammond Jr will head to the UK next week to support Franz Ferdinand on their upcoming tour. Following this he will play a headline London show at Dingwalls before returning to the US.

Albert Hammond Jr Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Thu March 01 2018 - LONDON Dingwalls

When we last spoke to Brian Fallon it was November 2016, eight months on from the release of his debut solo album, 'Painkillers’.

Field Music - Open Here (Album Review)
Fri 09 Feb 2018
That the Brewis brothers are now fathers to young children is evident on ‘Open Here’, and parenthood has given Field Music a brand new way of experiencing the world, its politics and its stereotypes.
Franz Ferdinand - Always Ascending (Album Review)
Tue 13 Feb 2018
The most telling thing about the early 2000s post-punk revival was its lack of staying power. Razorlight, Maxïmo Park, the Futureheads and countless others came flying out the gates, but by the end of the decade they had more or less faded out. You could cite over-saturation, or cycles in trends, as the reason behind that, but much of it had to do with the style's limited scope.
Ezra Furman - Transangelic Exodus (Album Review)
Wed 14 Feb 2018
Road songs are part of the fabric of rock ‘n’ roll. From the earliest greaser anthems through the open roads of west coast pop and manic rockabilly chase scenes, they’ve always been there. On ‘Transangelic Exodus’, Ezra Furman offers a new twist on the style, keeping both the wings and the wheels as he soundtracks “a personal companion for a paranoid road trip. A queer outlaw saga”.

MGMT - Little Dark Age (Album Review)
Thu 15 Feb 2018
MGMT’s Kids is legitimately one of the most accomplished, colourful, lavish electro-pop anthems of the past 20 years. Reinventing the fluro themes of their hero and musical forefather David Bowie, the duo earned stratospheric success with the single and their debut LP, ‘Oracular Spectacular’, in 2007.
