In 2017 British art-rockers Wild Beasts announced their breakup in a typed up statement, signed by the band and posted to Instagram. That was followed by a final EP, Punk Drunk and Trembling, three farewell concerts in February 2018, and a final album, February 2018’s live in the studio release Last Night All My Dreams Came True (which featured new interpretations of songs from across their catalogue). Now, a year later, the band’s singer Hayden Thorpe has released his first solo single, “Diviner,” via a video for the track. The single is out now via Domino (who also released most of Wild Beasts’ music). Crowns & Owls directed the video, which features Thorpe performing the song on an old piano in the forest at night. Watch it below.

Thorpe had this to say about the song in a press release: “Diviner became the first song and the divining rod for what was going to be next. 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.”
