"Darren Hayes in the studio with fresh new talent and a time machine making an epic double record.
In a famous London studio where gold and platinum discs of some of the biggest English records in pop history adorn the walls, Darren Hayes is holed up with new producer Justin Shave and a relic from the past: A Fairlight CMI Synthesizer.
For those unfamiliar with the instrument, in the early 80's this prototype sampler was the backbone of cutting edge electronic records by artists such as Peter Gabriel, Nick Rhodes, Jean-Michel Jarre and Kate Bush, to name but a few.
And this instrument has become the centerpiece of Hayes' new sound."
