The Walkmen Record 15 New Songs w/ Phil Ek

The Walkmen are way ahead of schedule with their follow-up to Lisbon, having just completed a round of productive recording sessions this month, long before their original plan to hit the studio in November. Working this time with producer Phil Ek — a man whose resumé includes breakthrough LPs by Built to Spill, Fleet Foxes, and Band of Horses — Hamilton Leithauser and co. have at least a couple dozen cuts ready for LP7 consideration: “15 songs survived his battle axe,” the band shared on Twitter. “We’ll be testing them live all September.”
