Hayden Calnin has released the first taste of forthcoming EP A Life You Would Choose (out September 13, 2019). 'Fuck Collingwood', a special double single release alongside instrumental track 'Late'.
Hayden's intimate and emotional new single "Fuck Collingwood" is the artists artistic closure on a decade of his life in the Melbourne suburb. Opening out of a cool, ambient calm with dulcet, mellow piano notes, “Fuck Collingwood” focuses listener attention on Calnin’s song and the story it tells. The 29-year-old sings a distant memory with increasing intensity, bringing to life the aches and pains of a rocky relationship: “We’re uneasy now come lately, took you to see my family, but I don’t know if you’re true,” he sings at the start, diving deeper and deeper into feelings of solitude, loneliness, loss, and disconnect until there’s nothing left to say but “Fuck Collingwood.”
In more exciting news from camp Calnin, Hayden has signed his first label deal, signing with North American label Nettwerk.
Calnin has kept busy in the two years since Dirt‘s release, expanding his repertoire as a collaborator and producer. In addition to producing with fellow Australian artists Didirri, Harrison Storm and Woodlock, Calnin recently teamed up with Dustin Tebbutt, LANKS, and Xavier Dunn to form the “indie supergroup” Ok Moon.
