Darren Hayman To Release January Songs CD in 2012

Darren Hayman has announced details of a CD release of this year’s January Songs project, which saw the former Hefner frontman write, record and release a song a day during January.

Just 1,500 copies of the CD will be made available, with the cover of each copy  featuring an individual hand drawn picture by Hayman.

The CDs will be released on 31 January 2012, to mark a year since the end of the project. Teaming up with Hayman on the project were a raft of collaborators including Allo Darlin, Ballboy and The Wave Pictures. Hayman’s Facebook and Twitter followers were also encouraged to supply subjects for songs and help with lyrics.

The songs range from folk to jazz to glam disco. To read our full review of January Songs click here.
