I seriously listened to Talk Talk Talk 30 times today. Can you believe his music has been in my life for 15 years? Half my life! I can't explain the feeling I get when I listen to his music.
His new album Secret Codes and Battleships is out in October. He hints at a tour here.
Hayes said: "I'm touring a really tiny number of dates this year. I'm doing just four dates in the UK in October.
"I'm doing two dates in America - an LA and New York show - and then in Australia I'm doing just Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in November. All of that will be announced in a couple of weeks, but that's what's happening."
