Hayden Thorpe has made his first move since Wild Beasts came to an end with a farewell UK tour and live album last year.

Diviner is his maiden solo track and ‘became the first song and the divining rod for what was going to be next’, according to Thorpe:

“There are, if we can wait for them, rare days of alignment. Diviner was written on such a day, my birthday of all days. The curtains were drawn for a while, I went inside. To say I’m delighted to see daylight would be an understatement.”

Wild Beasts announced their intention to part ways in 2017, saying at the time that their ‘hearts and minds have been devoted to the band since we were teenagers’, and the decision was made with confidence that they had ‘created something quite of our own and built a body of work which we stand by as heartfelt and true’.
