Hamilton Leithauser and Paul Maroon "How and Why"

Hamilton Leithauser and Paul Maroon "How and Why"
With the Walkmen on an "extreme hiatus," band members Hamilton Leithauser and Paul Maroon are preparing to release a duo album called Dear God. With the Etsy release coming late this month, they have now shared the song "How and Why."

The arrangement is a simple one, as Leithauser croons while accompanied by cavernous, reverb-drenched piano chords. It's a quietly affecting, lovely ballad with a vintage vibe.

A description on SoundCloud reads, "Another Song from Dear God, the greatest record ever written and recorded." Decide whether there's any merit to that claim by listening below.
