Hayden Thorpe shares music video for ‘Parallel Kingdom’

Following the announcement of his new album, Moondust For My Diamond, Hayden Thorpe has shared the music video for new single, ‘Parallel Kingdom’.

Hayden Thorpe’s new MV is directed by Tom Haines, and was shot in his homeland of The Lake District as was the the video for his previous single, ‘The Universe Is Always Right’.

He comments on the video,

“There are ancient stories to be told here, aeons play out in a single glance. Using Swinside Stone Circle as a location gave everything a certain sanctity.”

On the track he says,

“So much of our existence is an inconceivable wonder yet we’re so distracted that we rarely register the immenseness of the moment. Right there, beside us all along, is the wonder of everything.”

The English singer-songwriter’s forthcoming album, Moondust For My Diamond, will dive into the artist’s “more natural visual and sonic palette”.

In his words, he says,

“The meeting point between science and religion, the grand struggle for reality that shapes so much of our time.”

“What about nature? What about the cosmos? What about all these things that break through the tyranny of the self?  Our sense organs bring the world inside of us after all, I just had to sing it back out. I was enchanted again with the mystery of science and how I might speak from the heart in an age where metric is gospel.” 

Thorpe will also premiere music from his new album at two special shows in October – one with Aerial, at Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal and the other at Chat’s Palace, London.

He will also join Jon Hopkins on his European tour including a performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Moondust For My Diamond will be available digitally, on CD, standard LP, Deluxe LP plus DomMart Edition LP.  The Deluxe LP edition will include limited and signed handmade screen prints by Hayden, whilst the DomMart edition LP bundle includes the Aerial Songs EP 12″.

The album is due for release on October 15.

The LPs will be made with recycled materials in an effort to address the climate crisis. Pre-order here.
