Last year, Albert Hammond Jr released his latest album Francis Trouble. The Strokes are getting ready to headline Lollapalooza and Governors Ball.

Albert Hammond Jr said of the new song in a statement:

Good morning whoever may be reading this message. Welcome to this causal affair. “More to Life” was recorded at Sunset Sound in Studio 3. With Gus Oberg at the helm of production, it was completed late that night and was later mixed by Adam Hawkins; SAM KS played drums, Michael Shuman played bass, and Colin Killalea played guitar and piano. The sweetest of power trios. It was recorded live through a collection of analog gear, Prince’s mojo (he lived in this studio in the late-’80s) and our ever present digital medium that held all these beautiful melodies. Mastered by Steven Marcussen. This is my first full L.A. production. I hope you enjoy and please play it loud!

See the video.
