Darren Hayes Teases "Talk Talk Talk" Video

Darren Hayes is finally back with new music, and from the sound of things — i.e. first single "Talk Talk Talk" — the four years he took off from releasing material to recharge the creative juices was well-spent.

That snippet we heard the other day of the single doesn't really do the song justice. The whole enchilada is a rad mix of the dance-pop style Daz had been evolving into with his last two albums and the irresistible, hook-laden material that granted him commercial success to begin with.

Anyway, below is the first look at the "Talk Talk Talk" music video. As I mentioned the other day, the tune was produced by Carl Falk (Nicole Scherzinger's "Don't Hold Your Breath").

There will also be a B-side to the single when it's added to iTunes — a cover of Madonna's classic "Angel," which I'm imagining can only be a massive vocal improvement upon the original.

I am so effing happy this classy broad is back.

    Has it really been four years already? Wow.

    It's good to hear that the snippet doesn't do the song justice--it's grown on me a good bit, but initially it didn't feel like the strong song he needed both to keep up with his own material's quality and to make the move to major label backing (as presumably a shot at mainstream success, even if only in Australia or the UK or something) worth it.

    This won't really have success, I believe this way.
