Hayden Thorpe Shares ‘Full Beam’

It was recorded during sessions for solo album 'Diviner'...

Hayden Thorpe has shared his beautiful new solo cut 'Full Beam' – tune in now.

With Wild Beasts now sadly a memory, each member is free to pursue their own solo identities.

Hayden Thorpe was first out of the blocks, with his stunning piano-centred album 'Diviner' landing earlier this year.

Leo Abrahams acted as producer, and the sessions proved to be extremely productive.

New song 'Full Beam' was recorded during this time, and it's now been placed online as a standalone artefact.

A kind of bridge between 'Diviner' and what lies ahead, it's billed as "a moment of ecstatic release" by Hayden, who says:

"'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.”

Tune in now.
