Albert Hammond Jr – “100-99 feat. GoldLink” [Video]

Melodies On Hiatus, the new solo album from vocalist, songwriter and guitarist Albert Hammond Jr of the Grammy-winning group The Strokes, is slated for release on June 23 via Red Bull Records. The first track, “100-99” featuring GoldLink, is here alongside a video directed by Angela Ricciardi and Silken Weinberg—listen here and watch here.

“I grew up listening to 90s hip-hop, and I would always gravitate towards the melodic hooks in the songs I heard on the radio, specifically anything Dr. Dre was producing or rapping on,” Hammond Jr says about the new track. “Years later, I noticed myself pulling from the style of those melodic lines in my guitar work, even though it wasn’t obvious to anyone else as I was so directly associated with being in a rock band. ‘100-99’ was something I’ve wanted to do for some time—work with a rapper over a beat and guitar part I wrote—and it’s really exciting that I was able to do it with GoldLink.”
