NEWS: John Grant unveils video for title track of forthcoming album

John Grant has unveiled the video for the title track of his forthcoming album. ‘Love Is Magic’ is also his latest single and is out now; the album of the same name will be released on October 12 via Bella Union/Partisan Records.

The video for ‘Love Is Magic‘ was directed by Fanny Hoetzeneder, and the dog-starring clip is a snapshot of unconditional love, soundtracked by Grant’s epic electro-march.

Love Is Magic is Grant’s fourth studio album, following on from 2015’s Grey Tickles, Black Pressure. It was produced by Grant alongside analogue synth expert/collector Benge and Paul Alexander of Midlake. The album is said to fully embrace electronic music in its many forms in a way Grant has only flirted with previously. The album “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.
