Produced by Hayden McHugh and assisted by Thomas Lewis, «Smile» is the perfect follow up to his previous single «Take You» with it’s bright and lush synths, extremely catchy melodies, and Hayden’s powerful, pure, and smoky voice, antiquated with emotion.
With serious dedication to his live performance and music production, Hayden has landed having his songs featured on playlists like New Music Friday Deutschland, received 400,000 streams on «Alone» which also appeared on BBC Radio York, and placement on the LGBTQ Music Charts, all while frequently performing at venues such as Hifi and the Palace Theater in Calgary.
«Smile» was added to our Outed On Friday’s! Spotify playlist today.
«Agony» is the latest addition to his catalogue that explores the duality of the highs of love vs the dark realities of heartbreak. Never one to shy away from the absurd, Dean intentionally designed all imagery around the single to draw attention to the colourful and «picturesque» moments captured but with hints of decay and rot seeping in background, such as insects appearing on his face and hands.
