Hamilton Leithauser previewed new solo LP, covered Big Thief & more @ Cafe Carlyle residency (pics)

Hamilton Leithauser kicked off his 2020 residency at swanky NYC supper club Cafe Carlyle on Tuesday (1/14). He’s using these shows to preview songs from his upcoming solo album which is titled The Love of Your Life, and notes in the show’s program, “I wrote the songs about individual people. They are all real people. I know some of them and some are strangers I’ve come across in the last few years. All the stories are based on some kind of truth some more heavily than others.” Songs from the album include “Here They Come,” “The Stars of Tomorrow,” “Stars & Rats,” and “Isabella.”

He also played most of I Had a Dream That You Were Mine, his 2016 album with Rostam, plus a few covers: Big Thief’s “Not,” his friend Lana Del Ray’s “The Greatest” and Randy Newman’s “Miami.” Backing him was a killer band featuring Antibalas’ Stuart Bogie on woodwinds and Lacrisha Brown on vocals — both of whom play on Hamilton’s new album — plus Morgan Henderson on upright bass, Stephen Patterson on drums, Fleet Foxes’ Skyler Skjelset on guitar, and his wife Anna Stumpf on piano/vocals.
