John Grant has announced that his fourth solo album, Love Is Magic, will be released via Bella Union on October 12.
Hear the title track and lead single below:
Love Is Magic was created in collaboration with Ben Edwards AKA Benge, a member of electronic trio Wrangler, who previously worked with Grant on the Creep Show album Mr Dynamite. It also features key contributions from Midlake bassist Paul Alexander.
“Each record I make is more of an amalgamation of who I am,” says Grant. “The more I do this, the more I trust myself, and the closer I get to making what I imagine in my head.”
