ON SALE FRIDAY 19 OCTOBER
Singer-songwriter John Grant makes an eagerly awaited return following the release of his fourth solo album Love is Magic.
Thursday 28th March 2019
Exactly three years since the release of his last solo LP, John Grant returns with his new album Love Is Magic. Even when the Michigan-born man released his debut solo album Queen Of Denmark in 2010, Grant laced sumptuous soft-rock ballads with an array of spacey, wistful synthesizer sounds, increasingly adding taut, fizzing sequencers, nu-synth-disco settings and icy soundscapes to the mix on 2013’s Pale Green Ghosts and 2015’s Grey Tickles, Black Pressure. Now, with his fourth solo album Love Is Magic, Grant continues to evolve, creating his most electronic record yet.
There’s much else to tell about Grant. The demise of his first band The Czars led him to abandon music for five years before an instantly acclaimed solo career, chart success and a Best International Male Solo Artist nomination at the 2014 BRITS. Sinead O’Connor and Tracey Thorn have guested on Grant’s records, he’s sung live with Alison Goldfrapp and Kylie Minogue, performed at the 2017 Songs Of Scott Walker (1967-70) BBC Prom, and co-written/sung on Hercules & Love Affair and Robbie Williams albums. Last Autumn he recorded the "Kindling" duet with Elbow then went on to tour with them. His music has been used in films such as Andrew Haigh’s drama Weekend and Daisy Asquith’s Queerama. In 2016, he fronted BBC Radio 4's Reimagining The City, taking listeners around Reykjavik, where he has lived since 2012 and in April 2017 he curated North Atlantic Flux: Sounds from Smoky Bay in Hull, showcasing thrilling and innovative musicians from Scandinavia and Iceland. But that is the past, just as Grant’s autobiography is the future. The present is Love Is Magic, the latest instalment in Grant’s astonishing story.
