It’s been an unstoppable ride for Sydney’s Hayden James. Summer’s eternal hit ‘Something About You’ swept across clubs, radios and festival floors globally in 2015 – as the producer embarked on extensive world tours with the likes of Duke Dumont, ODESZA and support duties for Disclosure. Now preparing for several high profile US gigs at Webster Hall in New York, Firefly Festival in Delaware, Electric Forest in Michigan and Lollapalooza in Chicago, as well as huge performances internationally at Glastonbury, Latitude and Roskilde, Hayden James is ready to take it to the next level. The producer today shares his brand new single, “Just a Lover”.
An androgynous vocal, singing to a temporary lover, locks with driving bass lines and mesmerizing harmonies. Anthemic hooks deliver a song of desire and lust on “Just A Lover”, that’s searching, reminiscing, and hoping to reconnect all at the same time.
Hayden James’ debut track ‘Permission To Love’ garnered worldwide love in 2013, hitting the coveted #1 most-blogged spot on Hype Machine, and becoming one of the most played tracks on triple j radio in Australia. What followed was a debut EP release on Future Classic, a string of remixes for RUFUS, Dillon Francis & T.E.E.D, Safia, Duke Dumont and ODESZA, and two Australian national tours. BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong labelled his follow-up ‘Something About You’ a song to watch in 2015. Their prediction was spot on, with the radio favorite now past Gold sales in Australia and becoming a certified global dance hit. Scoring an ARIA nomination for ‘Best Dance Release’ and landing #44 on triple j’s Hottest 100 countdown, to date ‘Something About You’ has had over 40 million online plays and counting.
Currently on a headline tour across Europe and the US, warming up for a stunning show at Lollapalooza – and with more new music just around the corner – ease the anticipation with another interstellar single from Hayden James.
