Albert Hammond, Jr. has released a solo album entitled “Yours To Keep” in the U.K., Europe & Japan through Rough Trade Records in October 2006. It will be released on Scratchie/New Line Records in the U.S. on March 6, 2007, and in Canada on Red Ink Records on the same date.
“Yours To Keep” was recorded at New York’s Electric Lady Studios, LoHo Studios, and The Cabin In The City with Hammond, Jr. as guitarist and vocalist together with Josh Lattanzi on bass and Matt Romano on drums.
