Happy Release Day John Grant
Happy release day to the fantastic John Grant! Today, he releases his fourth studio album “Love Is Magic” and Bella Union couldn’t be happier to be a part of it! Order your copy online now or head out to your local record store and pick up a copy of this absolute treasure.
With his fourth solo album Love Is Magic, Grant has continued to evolve, creating his most electronic record yet, in collaboration with Benge (Ben Edwards), analogue synth expert / collector and a member of electronic trio Wrangler, Grant’s collaborators earlier this year under the collective name of Creep Show on the album Mr Dynamite.
Produced by Grant (together with Benge and Paul Alexander), and engineered by Benge at his Cornish studio, the diamond-hard, diamond-gleaming Love Is Magic, “is closer still to how I’ve always wanted my records to sound, but I didn’t know how to go about it,” Grant says. Besides the quest for sound, “the lyrics, of course, continue to be very important to me,” says John. “They’re just snapshots of everyday life where myriad moods and every sort of horrible and hilarious occurrence one can imagine mix with the pedestrian resulting in the absurdity and beauty of life.”
