Black Hours brings The Walkmen frontman full circle and then some, from lonely midwinter piano-and-vocals sessions, to a loud, live Rock ‘n Roll group and back again. Featuring Leithauser with a slew of talented collaborators including Rostam Batmanglij, Paul Maroon (The Walkmen), Morgan Henderson (Fleet Foxes) and Richard Swift (The Shins / solo), the album showcases Leithauser at his most passionate, personal and free.
