Hayden Thorpe is teasing a new EP with latest single, 'Blue Crow'

Hayden Thorpe is teasing a new EP with latest single, 'Blue Crow'.

It's a cut from three-track effort 'Aerial Songs' - due 16th October - alongside 'Head On A Platter' and 'Set It Loose'.

The release follows on from his recent debut album 'Diviner', with the tracks composed as part of Hayden’s time as artist in residence at Aerial Festival.

He says: “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."

Check out 'Blue Crow' below.
