Check out new track ‘Love Crimes’.

Wild Beasts’ Hayden Thorpe has announced his debut solo album.

‘Diviner’ will be released on 24th May, preceded by new track ‘Love Crimes’, which arrives with a video directed by Alexandra Liveris.

“My adulthood was based on a certain belief system, a band, a family,” he says. “When it shifted entirely, I had a ghost I had to find a new haunt for

“I believe in the medicinal properties of songs. I believe in their healing properties. Songs defy time, they don’t erode or denature, they come with you and reform anew in your mind as and when you need them.

“I broke up with myself. So this is a break-up album, but not about a relationship. It’s a break-up from a past self, it’s a breakup from the old idea of yourself and therefore every relationship, of all kinds, that you’ve ever had.”

The track listing reads:

Straight Lines
Earthly Needs
Love Crimes
Stop Motion
In My Name
Human Knot
Spherical Time
Impossible Object
