Darren Hayes Sets October Release For Fifth Album 'Homosexual', Drops New Song All You Pretty Things

Thursday, 18 August 2022 Written by Jon Stickler

Darren Hayes has announced his first album in over a decade.

The long-awaited follow-up to 2011's 'Secret Codes And Battleships' is called 'Homosexual' and will arrive on October 7.

It'll include the new synth-pop, dance floor-filler, All You Pretty Things, which you can stream below, alongside the record's cover art. Hayes commented:

"I named my album 'Homosexual' for a variety of reasons. The most obvious, is that I’m a gay man who grew up in an era when that word was used to shame and vilify people like me, so I wanted to reclaim it. I’m also a recording artist who came up in an era where being openly gay was frowned upon and I experienced first hand, the attempted erasure of my true identity from the marketing department of a major record label. But perhaps the most important reason I chose this title is that in 2022 I'm living in a time and in a country where the freedoms of LGBTQI+ people are more at risk than they’ve ever been. Moments like the Don’t Say Gay bill in Florida, or the constant attacks on trans people, have made it clear to me that now is the time to be as loud as possible about who I am."

Hayes will support the release and celebrate 25 Years of Savage Garden with the Do You Remember Tour ​across the UK in spring 2023. Tickets are on sale.
