John Grant returns with second album “Pale Green Ghosts”

Bella Union records are thrilled to announce the return of JOHN GRANT,  whose second solo album Pale Green Ghosts will be released on Monday 11th March 2013.

After a breakthrough year that saw his exceptional solo debut “Queen Of Denmark” win MOJO’s Album of 2010 and countless other accolades, John Grant hasn’t rested on his laurels but created a follow-up that underlines his uncanny and charismatic talents. Recorded in Iceland and featuring Sinead O’Connor on guest vocals, the brilliant “Pale Green Ghosts” adds sublime notes of dark, gleaming electronica to the anticipated velveteen ballads, calling on all of Grant’s influences and tastes, presenting an artist at the peak of his powers…

John Grant has also just announced a headline show at London’s Heaven the week of release, the tickets of which go on-sale Friday morning.
