Hayden shares new single + announces latest album

Toronto’s Hayden with release his 8th album entitled ‘Hey Love’ on March 24 via Arts & Crafts. Take a listen to the initial single, Nowhere We Cannot Go via Soundcloud below.

From the arresting low register of his 1996 arrival, ‘Everything I Long For,’ through the enigmatic ‘Skyscraper National Park’ (2001), and the steadfastly fragile ‘Elk-Lake Serenade’ (2004), Toronto’s Hayden has woven one of the most consistent through-lines of musical narratives imaginable, leading his audience through a scrapbook of downtimes fought and resolved, love lost and love solved. ‘Hey Love’ is a snapshot of this relationship: Hayden at his most prolific, and perhaps Hayden at his most celebrated.

Hey Love cover‘Hey Love’ arrives only two years after his last release, on the inspiration of Dream Serenade: Hayden and wife Christie Greyerbiehl’s inaugural benefit for Toronto’s Beverley St. School for developmentally disabled children (October 2014 at Massey Hall). The album was performed and produced almost entirely by Hayden at his Toronto home studio, Skyscraper National Park with contributions from his live band featuring Jay McCarrol, Taylor Knox, and JJ Ipsen.
