Acclaimed singer-songwriter Hamilton Leithauser returns to Café Carlyle for his third annual winter residency, January 14 – 18. The native New Yorker is currently putting the finishing touches on his second solo LP slated for release in 2020. His most recent release saw him collaborate with Angel Olsen on “Heartstruck (Wild Hunger).” Pitchfork declared the song “a gorgeously surreal version of early-1960s baroque-pop”. Leithauser’s 2016 collaboration with Rostam, I Had A Dream That You Were Mine, debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart, #1 New Artist Album, and was named one of the Year’s Best by Pitchfork, Esquire, NPR, and more. A.V. Club recently raved: “It occurred to me after 2016’s I Had A Dream That You Were Mine that the best years of Hamilton Leithauser’s career may still be ahead of him.”
