Pop/rock singer, songwriter, and guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. is the lead & rhythm guitarist and songwriting member of the GRAMMY® and BRIT Awards-winning band The Strokes. He has released 4 solo albums to date, most recently the acclaimed “Francis Trouble” in 2018 which spawned the radio single “Far Away Truths”. In the 4 years, since then, The Strokes released their US Top 10 charting GRAMMY® nominated rock record “The New Abnormal” and toured the world extensively. Albert also began the songwriting process for his 5th solo album “Melodies on Hiatus”, a 19-track album, crafted in a most experimental style. Albert teamed up with his writing partner, Canadian songwriter, and poet Simon Wilcox (whom he never met during the process) and had lengthy conversations via the telephone; Simon would jot down notes from Albert's stream of consciousness, and draft the lyrics on her typewriter, and drop them into his letterbox! Albert then added the lyrics to the melodies he had already crafted. The songwriting process became a long distant “anonymous love affair of ideas & lyrics.” The album covers themes of childhood, surviving adolescence, adulthood, vulnerability, fame, relationship with self and others, and is Albert's “deconstructed broken down ego reaction” to “Francis Trouble.” The album also features songs with GoldLink, Matt Helders (of the Arctic Monkeys), Steve Stevens and Rainsford, and was mixed by Tony Hoffer (known for his work with Beck, Air, M83, The Kooks, Fitz and the Tantrums, Metric, Chromeo, etc.) and mastered by Dave Cooley at Elysian Masters (Paramore, Spoon, Tame Impala, Jimmy Eat World, Peanut Butter Wolfe)

Pop/rock singer, songwriter, and guitarist Albert Hammond Jr. is the lead & rhythm guitarist
(sometimes keyboardist and backing vocalist), and songwriting member of the GRAMMY®
and BRIT Awards-winning band, The Strokes.
Albert moved from his hometown of Los Angeles to Switzerland as a teenager to attend the
boarding school Le Institut le Rosey, where he met future Strokes singer, Julian
Casablancas. In the late ‘90s, he moved to New York City to attend New York Universitys
film school and reconnected with Casablancas. From there, the Strokes were born.
Outside of the band, Albert has released four solo albums: Yours to Keep (2006), ¿Cómo Te
Llama? (2008), Momentary Masters (2015), and Francis Trouble (2018), each with their own
vibe. Yours to Keep is a pop-charmer while ¿Cómo Te Llama? synapses fire like crazy.
Momentary Masters reasserts his carefree charm and Francis Trouble is a deeply personal
album that reflects on family and an alter ego, which spawned the Alternative radio single,
“Far Away Truths”.
