Discussing the new song, Thorpe said: “When I was writing ‘Golden Ratio’, I was looking at it as a simple devotional song for science. I thought of music as a replica of nature. I see, the shapes and patterns we see in music are found in all kinds of things like flowers and shells.
“Science and math have allowed us to understand this hidden sequence. So songwriting becomes less about calling from within and more about noticing what is already there.”

The new record, which follows 2019’s debut “Diviner” and last year’s “Aerial Songs” EP, has been previewed by several songs ahead of its release.
At the album’s announcement in July, Thorpe shared the first single “The Universe Is Always Right”, followed by the tracks “Metafilling” and “Parallel Feeling”.
On the album’s release date this Friday, Thorpe will play a headline show in support of John Hopkins at Chats Palace in London ahead of the November dates.
