Hayden Thorpe has shared a new song, ‘Metafeeling’, alongside an accompanying video directed by Percy Dean. It’s taken from his upcoming album Moondust For My Diamond, which is out October 15 and includes the previously released tracks ‘Parallel Kingdom’ and ‘The Universe Is Always Right’. Check it out below.
“Nan Shepherd wrote in The Living Mountain, ‘In the rarefied air of the plateau, and indeed anywhere in the mountain, for the air is clear everywhere, shadows are sharp and intense’,” Thrope said of the new song and video in a press release. “I went after that rarefied air and the only way director Percy Dean and I could capture it was to get up there. A summit fever came over us both and we ended up climbing two mountains that day, Fleetwith Pike and Honister Crag. He, with a heavy-as-hell camera and me carrying an acoustic guitar dressed in a Nudie suit. The invisible thrust that pushed us up there is pretty familiar to me, when you’re suspended between rock and sky there’s an explosion of the senses. Translating just a fraction of that euphoria is a lifetime’s work.”
