The video features the indie rock guitar hero playing opposite Dutch model Nina de Raadt, in a stylized black and white story, depicting a kind of hipster love affair.
AHJ is the third solo release from the guitarist who was a founding member of New York rock band, the Strokes. “St. Justice” has an easygoing, light rock meets indie vibe, that’s plays nicely with the video.
The new album is the guitarist’s first since completing a stint in rehab in 2009.
Speaking to Rolling Stone, Hammond said:
“It feels like the universe has just lined up for me to really take responsibility: ‘If you want to do this thing, do it. Stop trying to hide behind things. Just do it and take the good and the bad straight up.’ I’m really excited about it, I’m ready.”
