The indie institution returns for his 15th album, adapting the words and politics of the 19th century polymath William Morris into an electrifying blend of fiery Billy Bragg optimism and strident calls-to-arms.

Warm, fuzzy guitar distortion sits alongside broken pianos and dented brass, community choirs and stirring prose, creating uniquely affecting and strikingly innovative folk songs for our troubled times. “full of beautifully written and well-crafted tunes” 4/5 – musicomh, “a unique and unwavering vision” 4/5 – the skinny, “Hayman has given us a beautifully crafted love-letter… a collection of songs that belong to everyone and cement Hayman’s place as a nationalised treasure” 8/10 – drowned in sound
