Albert Hammond Jr. Shares New Video For "Losing Touch"

Albert Hammond Jr.’s official video for his latest single, “Losing Touch,” is here! Director Laurent Briet (The Strokes' "Taken For a Fool") says this about the video:

“Albert and I happened to be in close proximity to one another right at the time he needed new videos to promote his new album. Personally, I am always feeling that we’re all living on borrowed time and that every opportunity should be grabbed and made the most out of. With this in mind we took off to Morocco to explore this notion on a two day road trip extravaganza. 'Losing Touch' is the first part of what came out of this journey.”



“Losing Touch” appears on Momentary Masters which will release on July 31. Preorder the digital album on iTunes now and get “Born Slippy” and “Losing Touch”, or snag the physical record through the Vagrant webstore.

Active Child’s highly anticipated sophomore release, Mercy, is available nationwide today! Serving as a follow up to 2011’s critically acclaimed LP, You Are All I See, and 2013’s Rapor EP, Mercy showcases Grossi’s raw, honest, and incredible vocals like never before.

Active Child - Mercy: iTunes | Amazon | Vagrant Store | Spotify

Produced and recorded in Brooklyn with Van Rivers (Blonde Redhead, Fever Ray) the ten-track LP is a collection of love songs, each shining a different light on the subject. “This album more than previous releases feels like more of a collaboration between the producer and I. His fingerprints are all over these songs and he really pushed me vocally, more than anyone has before.”

In support of Mercy, Active Child is currently on tour w/ Low Roar, headlining tonight at the SOLD OUT Music Hall of Williamsburg. The tour takes him across the country and back, wrapping up in Los Angeles on July 10 with a very special surprise performance (more details to come). In Chicago Active Child will be accompanied by the acclaimed Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra for an unmissable event. Orchestrations will be written by renowned British composer, Joe Duddell, who has collaborated with likes of Elbow, Nero, New Order, Daughter, Clean Bandit, Richard Hawley, and BBC Philharmonic. The 18-piece orchestra will perform sixteen songs with Pat and his band. A full list of upcoming dates can be found HERE.

My new album Mercy is finally out today and I couldn't be more proud to share it with you all! I wrote these songs to help heal myself and to try to understand what it is to be grown, to be a man and to love truly. May this album show you the same compassion it has shown me… All my love and understanding, Pat iTunes: http://smarturl.it/ACmercyAmazon: http://smarturl.it/MercyAMZStore: http://smarturl.it/ACStoreSpotify: http://smarturl.it/ACspotify
