I had forgotten about this.
About a year ago, I caught the Walkmen at the Middle East and sneaked some video of them playing a then-untitled new song (possibly for the first time ever - Hamilton Leithauser wasn't clear). I didn't really think about it too much afterwards.
Cut to this week. The Walkmen have now released Lisbon to much acclaim (including from us).
As you can hear Hamilton Leithauser say, the song in the video above from Friday night's Walkmen show is one they had written fairly recently. They didn't provide a title, either. We'll have more on these shows later, but after the jump, we've got video of "The Rat" and "In the New Year."
