Five things about Hayden Thorpe’s uplifting new single ‘Metafeeling.’

Originally from Kendal, Cumbria Hayden Norman Thorpe is an English singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. He started his carrier in 2002 as a frontman of the indie-pop band Wild Beasts.

Hayden Thorpe unveils “Metafeeling,” the latest single from his upcoming second solo album, Moondust for My Diamond.

The song is taken from his upcoming new solo album ‘Moondust For My Diamond,’ which will be released on October 15 via Domino.

In a statement, he expressed his feelings:

“I was feeling inspired by studies into the potential healing properties of psilocybin mushrooms in psychotherapy. I signed up for a flagship program in the Netherlands as I wanted to explore consciousness in a safe way. The line ‘whatever was was, now what is is’ came to me and distilled much of what I had experienced during that time.”

“Metafeeling” follows the previously shared songs “Parallel Kingdom” and “The Universe Is Always Right.” Percy Dean directed the video for “Metafeeling.” It was filmed in Cumbria’s Lake District—England’s largest national park. The song also presents the striking scenery of Thorpe’s home as he plays guitar in his equally spectacular suit.

 That Hagstrom Viking baritone guitar is central to Moondust For My Diamond. Moondust For My Diamond follows 2019’s Diviner and Aerial Songs album. Thorpe will premiere music from his new album at two special shows this October, one associated with Aerial at Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal and the other at London’s Chat’s Palace.
