Let's get the name dropping out of the way first, Darren Hayes was one half of massive pop group Savage Garden, but ten years later he's rejected major label deals and is launching a new career as an electronic/indie artist. Should you be intrigued, check out his MySpace page here.

Hayes' album, 'This Delicate Thing We've Made' is already causing a stir as the specially commissioned animated video for teaser track, 'Who Would Have Thought' crashed the website when it was first aired last week! Watch it for yourself here. Also in demand are intimate shows that Hayes has been playing in London, Sydney and New York, with tickets available predominantely to the singer's MySpace friends and shows sold out within 5 minutes, so make sure to add Hayes as a friend to find out about any new performances.

'This Delicate Thing We've Made' is due out on 20th August, ignore the past and check out the dark beats of the new Darren Hayes.
