It’s been the most spectacular of journeys, from a place in time when John Grant feared he’d never make music again, to winning awards, accolades and Top 20 chart positions, collaborating with the likes of Sinead O’Connor, Goldfrapp and Elton John, as well as a Best International Male Solo Artist nomination at the 2014 BRITS Awards.
2013’s ‘Pale Green Ghosts’ really set the bar high. It was made in Icelandic capital Reykjavik (where Grant has lived ever since), and entered the UK Top 20 in its first week and ended up as Rough Trade Shop’s Album of the Year 2013, The Guardian’s No.2 and in MOJO and Uncut’s Top Five. The follow up ‘Grey Tickles, Black Pressure’ is no less brilliant and has furthered his reputation as a supreme song-writer. We’re bracing ourselves for what is looking like one of the most anticipated performances of Field Day’s 10 years.Listen
