John Grant Announces New Album 'Love Is Magic,' Shares Electronic Title Track: Listen

81

Singer-songwriter John Grant has announced that his upcoming album, Love Is Magic, will arrive Oct. 12. He also released the record’s synthesizer-heavy title track today (July 10).

With over ten tracks almost entirely electronic music, Grant is making a massive genre shift from his last record, Grey Tickles Black Pressure, which debuted at No. 20 on the Heatseekers Albums chart.

“Love’s a shitshow that requires work,” Grant says about the new song. “It’s not all lollipops and rainbows and ‘67 Dodge Dart Hemis and STD’s and macaroni and cheese and John Carpenter. But nothing can distract from the fact that, in spite it all, love is still magic.”
