New Album From The Strokes’ Guitarist Hammond Jr.

The StrokesThe new and improved guitarist of The Strokes is ready to release some new solo material. Hammond Jr. recently opened up about his debilitating heroin addiction (which lasted from around 2006 until 2009) in an NME article, saying that by his second solo album (Como Te Llama?) he was in “a dark place.” But now, he’s enjoying life more than ever and is ready to release his third solo album, AHJ, on October 8th via fellow Strokes member Julian Casablancas’ label Cult Records.

Last week, Zane Lowe debuted a song off of the album titled “Rude Customer” as the Record of the Week. He then did a phone interview with Hammond Jr. which showcased his happiness with his life and the music. He also dropped the idea that with where The Strokes are now, they could “release 10 more albums” — music to my ears. And tomorrow, Hammond Jr. will play the first single off the album, “St. Justice,” on The Late Show with David Letterman. Tune in to hear the song live and to see who will be part of his touring band.

For you fellow Strokes/Hammond Jr. fans, he comes through Boston on November 8, playing Brighton Music Hall (I’ll see you there).

Here’s the tracklist for the album:

1. St. Justice
2. Strange Tidings
3. Carnal Cruise
4. Rude Customer
5. Cooker Ship
