Albert Hammond Jr. Debuts ‘Side Boob,’ Third Track From ‘Momentary Masters’
In a matter of a couple of weeks, the Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. will drop his third solo effort, Momentary Masters. Ahead of that day, he’s given fans another glimpse of what’s to come by sharing the very Strokes-sounding album closer, “Side Boob.” Take a listen in the video above.
Momentary Masters will land in stores on July 31 via Vagrant, following 2008’s ¿Como Te Llama?. “Side Boob” is the third track to emerge from the forthcoming album, joining lead single, “Born Slippy,” and “Losing Touch.”
Hammond will take his latest solo LP on the road come this fall, starting with a show in Pittsburgh on Sept. 9. From there, he’ll play St. Louis’ Loufest, D.C.’s Landmark Festival, Austin City Limits and a long list of headlining shows. The run of dates will wrap up on Nov. 7 in Philadelphia.

While the Strokes have been pretty quiet since 2013’s Comedown Machine, Hammond has been working on his solo career and his Strokes bandmate Julian Casablancas released Tyranny, his first album with his side project, the Voidz, last year. However, Casablancas recently revealed that the Strokes may soon begin work on a Comedown Machine follow-up.
“We’re planning on recording stuff,” Casablancas said in an interview back in April. “I still think we could do cool things and I’ll do that. I’d like to do both [bands] really if I could.”
