It is with great pleasure that Domino announce Diviner, the debut solo album from Hayden Thorpe, due for release on 24th May 2019. Along with the news of Diviner, Hayden Thorpe shares the new track, “Love Crimes” plus a video, directed by Alexandra Liveris, and filmed on location in Australia last month!
Diviner is a deeply emotional album: lyrically generous in its candid tone and self-awareness, the melodies resonant with sense memory. The album feels like a startling departure from Thorpe’s previous work with Wild Beasts and also unlike anything else being made at the moment.
Throughout the record, Thorpe’s voice is a beacon – paired with weaving piano, ambient guitar drifts and propulsive bass lines – his sound is even more powerfully unfettered than before, as if he’d found a new inner voice, a new way to use his instrument.
