It Should Have Been A Single...
In case you have been living under a rock somewhere recently you'd know that Darren Hayes (Formerly of Savage Garden) is about to release his 3rd album. From what I've heard so far, including the new track that was just posted by PopPosterGirl, the album is going to be one of the best pop albums of the year.
The last time Darren released a solo album was back in 2004. The album 'The Tension and the Spark' will go down as one of the best pop albums of all time. If you don't have this album, you MUST go out and look for it as soon as possible.
The album was a huge departure for Darren. Instead of the guaranteed radio friendly hits his fans were expecting, we got an electronic based and was a very emotional album. While the album didn't sell as well as his previous album, the album earned Darren the strongest critical praise of his career.
On Aug. 20th Darren will release a two disc, 25-track album on his own label. After selling over 25 million records with Columbia, they parted ways in 2006. I urge you all to take the time to look for this album and support this artist. 'This Delicate Thing We Made' is set to be one of the best releases of the year.
Two of my favorite tracks from this album are, 'Hero' and 'Unlovable.' I vote that they should have been a single! What do you think?
