Hayden Thorpe has shared a brand new song ahead of the imminent release of his new album – watch the video for ‘Golden Ratio’ below.

Discussing the new song, Thorpe said: “When I was writing ‘Golden Ratio’, I landed upon it as a kind of simple devotional song to science. I see music very much as a replication of nature, the shapes and patterns that we perceive in music are found in all kinds of things like flowers and shells.

“Science and mathematics have allowed us to decipher this hidden order. Writing songs therefore becomes less about summoning from within and more about noticing what’s already there.”

Watch the video for the new track below:

The new record, which follows 2019 debut ‘Diviner’ and last year’s ‘Aerial Songs’ EP, has been previewed by a number of songs ahead of its release.

Upon the album’s announcement back in July, Thorpe shared first single ‘The Universe Is Always Right’, before subsequent tracks ‘Metafeeling’ and ‘Parallel Feeling’ were also shared.

On the album’s release date this Friday, Thorpe will play a headline show at London’s Chats Palace, before November dates in support of Jon Hopkins follow.
