WATCH: Fairhazel shares new track/video, ‘7×7’

Part of Communion’s Singles Club, Fairhazel (aka Hugh Macdonald) shares his debut offering ‘7×7.’

With a youth spent in Cape Town, London and Paris, Fairhazel’s exposure to many different cultures is clear in ‘7×7’ – genre spanning, expansive and impossible to pin down.

In ‘7×7,’ Fairhazel takes inspiration from Bardo Thodol – the Tibetan Bookof the Dead, which details a Buddhist’s journey from death to reincarnation. Singing of  “breaking free” from “routine days” to a place of enlightened “knowledge of humanity” with Sufjan Stevens-esque tones, while similarly managing to pay ode to the beauty of the cities that have shaped him and his sound.

With a similarly beautiful video, ‘7×7’ is the perfect introduction to Fairhazel.


7×7 is now out digitally and on vinyl later this month
This year’s Singles Club releases are available to buy as a subscription from (for £20, which also includes a poster of the year’s singles, at the end of the year), as well as standalone vinyl releases, and of course on all digital platforms.
