WALTER MARTIN: “We Like The Zoo”

Another adorable track from ex-Walkmen Walter Martin’s solo debut We’re All Young Together , out May 13 via Family Jukebox. With additional vox from The National’s Matt Berninger. “‘We Like the Zoo (‘Cause We’re Animals Too)’ is my tribute to the lost art of the novelty song,” Walter says. “Songs like ‘Poison Ivy” and ‘Yakety Yak’–all those Leiber and 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.” Word.
