The Strokes guitarist, Albert Hammond Jr. will release his fourth solo album ‘Francis Trouble‘ on March 9. Last night he stopped by Conan to premiere his huge new single “Muted Beatings“.

Francis Trouble‘ is set to be his most personal album yet; as he revealed the inspiration behind the record: the stillbirth of a twin brother, Francis, months before his own healthy bird. And though it is a serious topic, he says: “What the music says may be serious, but as a medium it should not be questioned, analysed or taken too seriously.
