Hayden Thorpe announces new EP 'Aerial Songs'

Following on from the release of his much-loved 2019 debut album 'Diviner', Hayden Thorpe has returned to announce the details behind a brand new EP, arriving next month.

The new three-track collection 'Aerial Songs' was written and self-produced by the frontman himself, with additional production work from Nathan Jenkins (aka Bullion), long-time collaborator Richard Formby, and 4AD producer Fabian Prynn; is being previewed by the new single 'Blue Crow', and is set to be released on the 16th October via Domino Recordings.

Speaking about the new release, Hayden said, “Since my first broody teenage attempts to make music and beyond into gradually becoming an adult concerned with making decent music, I’ve found the prospect of making work about the Lake District an off-puttingly daunting task. I’ve always felt ill equipped to even nearly match the enchantment of being within the fells.

"I wouldn’t say I’m any better prepared now, it might just be that I can perhaps more precisely distil the vital affirmation I feel in the mountains. Maybe it is that I am, by now, far enough away from the blast radius of a frustrated rural youth shit show to get clear headed and attempt it.”

'Aerial Songs' Tracklist:
