The Walkmen - The Walkmen's Walter Martin Releasing Children's Album
The Walkmen's Walter Martin is set to release a children's album.
The rocker's We're All Young Together will debut in May (14), and will feature a collaboration with The National's Matt Berninger on the song We Like The Zoo ('Cause We're Animals Too).
Martin says, "(That's) my tribute to the lost art of the novelty song. Songs like Poison Ivy and Yakety Yak - all those (Jerry) Leiber and (Mike) Stoller masterpieces are a big part of my life.
"I didn't want to put my name on an album that didn't have room for that kind of song."
Martin also worked with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs frontwoman Karen O on a track called Sing To Me.
