Watch John Grant perform on Later… With Jools Holland

Last night the amazing John Grant performed two tracks on Later… with Jools Holland ahead of his album release on Friday. Watch the performance of his single ‘Disappointing’ below.

Grey Tickles, Black Pressure will be released via Bella Union on October 9th 2015.

Critical acclaim for the album:

“The confessional king’s funkiest and finest yet.”

Uncut – 8/10

“His most riveting album yet.”

Q – 4 Stars ****

“A magnificent album, enthralling in its complexity.”

MOJO – 4 Stars ****

“His ability to suddenly change mood and find tenderness and compassion amid the bleakness can knock you sideways… Grey Tickles, Black Pressure is variously agonising, hilarious, uplifting and moving: another bravura display from a unique songwriting talent.”

The Guardian – 4 Stars **** (Album Of The Week)

“Musically, he jumps just as easily between gorgeous soft-rock ballads (Global Warming, Geraldine) and funky electro-pop (the wonderful Disappointing). Result? Grey Tickles is a worthy follow-up to its illustrious predecessors.”

Sunday Times (Album Of The Week)

“Grant is still angry, still purging, but with a heightened sense of mischief, both musical and lyrical.”

The Observer –  4 Stars **** (Album Of The Week)

“The Colorado musician’s third record is ridiculous in its genre-hopping musical scope, in its savagely barbed humour and, above all, in its remarkable songwriting.”

NME – 4 Stars ****

“The sharp-witted, silken-voiced singer-songwriter has created a bunch of marvellous songs for Grey Tickles, Black Pressure that barely leave a genre unturned yet are all unmistakably his own.”

Time Out – 4 Stars ****

“A multi-hued sonic delight of swooping orchestrations, buzzing electro and velvet-lined balladry. Grant’s open-hearted, funny and angry insights show his questing and compassionate spirit operating at its unbounded best.”

The Mirror – 4 Stars ****

“An album that illuminates the darkness with rich reserves of art, heart and humour.”

The Independent On Sunday – 4 Stars ****

“Grant holds our attention with unexpected juxtapositions, charming harmonies and sly wit… Too much, in his hands, is never enough.”

Financial Times – 4 Stars ****

“The most powerful use of electronic sounds since Depeche Mode’s Black Celebration.”

Sunday Express – 4 Stars ****
