Darren Hayes is BACK BACK BACK

I L.O.V.E. Darren Hayes. The same way I L.O.V.E.D. Savage Garden. Yes for those who didn't know, Darren was the Australian twosome's singer back in the day. 

His solo work undoubtedly makes him one of the very few amazing male popstars. Too bad he's still appears as an outsider of the pop royalty. He's one of the very few guys who can make pop as interesting as with female artists. 

His new single Talk Talk Talk is an awesome and clever slice of electro-pop goodness. The verses are reminiscent of Madonna's Get Together (can anyone do a mash up please?), as xolondon pointed out the other day on Twitter. And those strings at the end of the single edit of the track !!!!
Ever the Madonna fan, Darren recorded a REALLY great cover of the Queen's Angel as the b-side to the single. He did also cover Dress You Up a few years ago to stellar results.

(Dress You Up)

Now you know what to do: head to the nearest iTunes store and buy buy buy those two tracks. Pop probably won't get any better this Summer. 

PS: Darren, I want to interview you. Thank you. Kiss kiss kiss.
