newly penned songs for his fans via Instagram Live. Fans will get a
“first listen” of the music he has been working on over the last few
months. This is the first sign of new music for Hayes since the release
of his album boom. at the end of last year, which produced the
Platinum-selling single “You Broke Up With Me” and the critically
acclaimed song “Craig,” for which the coinciding charity “Be A Craig
Fund” was created.
Hayes’ first Instagram Live performance is set for Tuesday, July 31st.
Even with his busy summer schedule, Hayes has been steadily busy writing and recording tracks for his forthcoming second album.
