Darren Hayes is smug.



From Darren's myspace:

I've been recording a secret side project album with my long term co-writer and collaborator Robert Conley over the past 2 years. It was finished and mixed in December last year and just last week the album was mastered.

It's a band we call We Are Smug. Robert and I share lead vocal and songwriting duties on everything, and up until this second, we haven't spoken a word of it to anyone outside of our circle of friends.


But today, on my birthday, we've decided it's release day and if you visit http://www.wearesmug.com/
you can download it for free.

This is not the direction of my next album, nor is 'free' the new price for my music. This is just something I am doing because I can.
Haven't played it yet - have you?

Update: Not really my thing, but there are two songs you should check out: The Pressure and Never Be The Same. Hot Tub Blues is amusing, if a bit of a novelty...

Darren was better in the 20 seconds he was on the Pam Ann show last week...

Kind of refreshing in a way. If these are the songs just sitting around, I can only imagine the good stuff they are holding back! Shit on the Radio is so much fun, and Never Be the Same is a hidden gem.

Thanks again for the tip!
