Well it seems that Australia will be missing out on ‘Black Out The Sun’ as the second single from Darren Hayes’ forthcoming album ‘Secret Codes & Battleships’ – that honour will go to ‘Bloodstained Heart’, the track currently being used on the promos for Channel 7’s X Factor.
But that doesn’t mean that we can’t thoroughly enjoy watching and reporting on the video for the new tune, which will be digitally released in the UK in early October with orchestral and extended versions and even a 7th Heaven remix available on the British digital bundle.
To say the single version is epic is an understatement – it’s stabs of strings to open promise great things, and we’re happy to say that promise is not broken. ‘Black Out The Sun’ is dark and dramatic, suspenseful and stirring and allows Mister Hayes the opportunity to let his sublime falsetto out of the box.
Impassioned and epic. There’s no getting around it – the guy’s a superstar.
