Hayden Thorpe shares new track ‘Full Beam’

The new material “acts as a bridge between ‘Diviner’ and what is to come next” for the solo artist.

Former Wild Beasts frontman Hayden Thorpe has shared a brand new track today, titled ‘Full Beam’.

The song, which was recorded with Leo Abrahams during sessions for his recent debut solo album ‘Diviner’, is said to act as “a bridge between ‘Diviner’ and what is to come next on Hayden’s journey.”

Speaking of the track, Hayden has said: “‘Full Beam’ was the final track to emerge from the ‘Diviner’ sessions, featuring drums from Stella Mozgowa, backing vocals from Josephine Stephenson and an outrageous saxophone performance from Matana Roberts. It was designed to be a moment of ecstatic release from the brooding songs that preceded it and as serves a calling card for what is to come.”

Hayden’s also announced plans for a series of live shows this November and December - check out the dates below, and listen to ‘Full Beam’ at the bottom of the article.
