This is an interesting story I found. Aparently a while back one single Humpback whale was found who traveled completely alone. Humpbacks are known to be extremely social, and quite dependent on pod-mates. They were not sure why this whale had no companions of any kind, until recently, when they figured out that the whale sings outside of the range that other whales can hear well (this one is singing around 52 hertz), and thus no one else can hear the songs. He is the only one that sings in his high range at all. He is thought to possibly be an accidental hybrid of two species of whales.

Seems like poetic novelty to me.

Here are some examples of Humpback whale songs:

And here is an example of this individual's typical songs:
