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.
