Reviews:

Hayden’s follow-up to 2013’s Us Alone will be the long-standing Toronto-based folk and indie rock artists’ eighth full-length record since 1996’s timeless debut Everything I Long For. His second album for Arts & Crafts will be released in Winter 2015, for which conceptual work has already begun. 

Always staying true to the baritone poetry signature that Hayden’s work has carried from the early days of “slacker” indie rock through to his current implantation at the heart of eternal Canadian singer-songwriter music, the follow-up to Us Alone intends to be a more rock-oriented affair, building on the incredible momentum the artist built with the Crazy Horse-like live outfit that toured extensively on the last round. Arts & Crafts’ acquisition of Hayden on Us Alone, and the continuation of this relationship with the forthcoming record, is an important development in the roster profile of the influential Canadian label. Partnering with compatriot artists like Gord Downie & The Sadies and Fucked Up, who are leaders in their disciplines of Canadian music. By aligning with a legacy artist such as Hayden, a mainstay in the consciousness of indie rock listeners, Arts & Crafts is fortifying the quality and scope of its releases, and maturing the brand in a meaningful, relevant way, in time with its new, renewed, and diversifying audiences.
