This week, Walter Martin, former (and may be future) bassist for The Walkmen announced his third solo album, My Kinda Music.
During his time with The Walkmen, Martin served at the band's bassist and organist. He released his first solo record shortly after the band's hiatus in 2014, We're All Young Together. The album was a collection of children's songs. He followed that up last year with a more traditional album, Arts + Leisure.
His third album will see him returning to the children's music scene. The album features Laura Gibson, Phil Ek, Gabe Wax, and Matt Berninger. Along with the album's announcement on Wednesday, he released the first single from the album, the Berninger-featuring "Hey Matt."
My Kinda Music is coming on May 5.
