Darren Hayman is to release his first purely solo album (featuring no other musicians) on November 6 via Fika Recordings. The album, titled Florence, is named after the city in which it was written and recorded between Christmas and New Year at the end of 2014 at the Firenze flat belonging to Elizabeth Morris (Allo Darlin’) and Ola Innset (Making Marks). Listen to the track Nuns Run The Apothecary below:
Florence is sparse and poignant. Tinged with melancholy and etched with heartache, revealing the very best of Hayman’s considerable songwriting verve, this collection of songs shows what you can achieve whilst on holiday at a friend’s house, taking refuge in the winter quiet during the festive season.
