Darren Hayes is out with the ninth in a series of video blogs documenting the making of and release of his fourth studio album due later this year. The video includes the former Savage Garden singer signing a record deal on April 13th. “It’s a record contract with Mercury Records in Australia, and this is a pretty momentous occasion for me,” Hayes said. “It’s been a period of… years that I’ve been making this album, and it’s always been our plan to find partners around the world to bring the album to you. This is a partnership I’m incredibly excited about and grateful for.” Watch the clip via YouTube below.
