QT co-creator and artist Hayden Dunham has announced their debut full-length as Hyd, CLEARING, due out November 11 via PC Music. It follows their self-titled 2021 EP and they wrote and recorded it with collaborators A.G. Cook, Caroline Polachek, Jónsi, EASYFUN, Ö, and the late SOPHIE. See the cover art and tracklist below.

The first single is "So Clear," a hypnotic hyperpop track which Hyd wrote with EASYFUN and SOPHIE. "The feeling of rejection opened up my own questions about choosing Earth, choosing to make something new here, to be rooted when turbulent winds bend the stems," Hyd says. "Transmuting a feeling of loss into something fortifying - ripples in the water that become still. 'So Clear' emerges from a place of total loss, full collision, and the freedom that comes through surrender.”

Hyd also announced a tour this fall with Charli XCX producer and fellow PC Music artist umru. The North American dates begin in late October and run through November; see them below.

There's a Brooklyn show on November 15 at Pioneer Works. Tickets go on sale today (9/8) at noon.
