Darren Hayes Today After "Savage Garden"

Ex Frontman From Fame Australian On The Radio Scene Promoting Deeply Moving 2nd Solo Record

Ballad mainstream radio singer Darren Hayes is known for his voice in those funky art compostions like "Truly Madly Deeply" and "I Knew That I Loved You, not for revealing what he endured in his youth and young adulthood. Now, both his voice and his life are compressed into one deeply moving autobiographical album called "The Tension And The Spark".

In recent revelations, Hayes has talked about how he and his family endured and overcame domestic violence and alcholism. He kept it private from the world as it was his family's wish. Today, he is ready to reveal to the world what kind of agony he endured regarding his history of relating with people and situations. The album isn't sappy with drenching love ballads. Its more than anything one has heard. It can be heartwrenching to listen too when the listener can easily understand Haye's process of dealing with pain. Most importantly,this album has the ability to see "light at the end of the tunnel" and heal such wounds. Definately need a box of tissues if you end up hearing your own life story within the realms of the lyrics while the electronic beats make a mark as to how much you have personally endurred yourself.

On a much more positive note, Hayes first single called "Popular" (that has reached the top of the charts in the UK and Australia), is a catchy parody what it takes to make it in the mainstream music industry. Its funky and radiant with a twist of "self promotion" as hayes has put it.

The single "Popular" is already out and available online and the album is do to be released on September 13th in the UK and Australia.
