Albert Hammond Jr takes in The Haunt in Brighton on December 5 as he embarks on a string of dates, following the release of his AHJ EP.

AHJ follows Hammond’s previous solo efforts, Yours to Keep and ¿Cómo Te Llama?

Albert said the new recording was “a combination of both previous recordings, which in turn makes it feel like it’s the best material that I’ve made so far.”

AHJ was produced, engineered and mixed by Grammy-winning producer Gus Oberg and recorded at Hammond’s two studios, Broome Street in Manhattan and One Way Studios in upstate New York.

“I’ve been working with him since my first solo project, after we met and became best friends. We get along and we understand each other musically, so everything just flows.”

Hammond played all the instruments on the EP himself, excluding drums on several tracks, which were played by long-time collaborator Matthew Frank Romano.
