Toronto based singer-songwriter Hayden has confirmed his seventh studio album Us Alone will arrive on February 5th via Arts & Crafts. Hayden plays all the instruments in Us Alone, and as he explained, “I wanted the sound of five people walking into a room and playing a full set. With the exception of some stellar help from friends on a song or two, those five people were mostly just me”.
Speaking about the recording, Hayden said there are no stories around the album. “I didn’t go record in a Norwegian Village or at the bottom of a shrimp vessel. I walked upstairs where every instrument has a microphone and hit record. And, as usual, the songs came together over a long period of time.” Hayden’s music is dreamy enough to let us drift into places filled with warmth and delicateness.
