Not only does The Walkmen's Hamilton Leithauser have one of the best names in music, he also has a circle of excellent friends he can call upon if he were to ever, say, feel compelled to make a solo record.

Yesterday, it was confirmed that he is indeed making a solo record and Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij, Richard Swift of The Shins, the Walkmen's Paul Maroon, plus Fleet Foxes/Cave Singers' Morgen Henderson are all joining Hamilton for sessions at Vox studios in LA.

Beyond this and a few Vines and Instagram video clips from Richard Swift’s accounts, details are scarce, but we a thought to be looking at a Spring 2014 release.

Check out the clips over at Pitchfork.
