What a simple, brilliant idea. Darren Hayman, formerly of Hefner and, since 2006, a solo artist whose live reputation precedes him, has set William Morris’ Chants For Socialists to music. Hayman’s re-ordered the songs, edited the text where appropriate to ensure the content speaks loudly to a modern audience, composed and arranged the music and even gone as far as to record the resultant tunes at three of Morris’ former abodes. The texts, originally intended to be sung to popular melodies of the day, lend themselves well to Hayman’s pared back, folky song-writing style.
