Hear John Grant’s new single featuring Tracey Thorn

The new single, ‘Disappointing’, from John Grant’s forthcoming album Grey Tickles, Black Pressure immediately sounds fresh for the singer, with a bassline that comes across like Axel F’s Beverley Hills Cop theme that gives way to some light funk chords before Grant’s consuming baritone which reels out a large list of things – rollercoasters, trombones, french horn sections, ancient trees – all of which are disappointing compared to the object of Grant’s affections.

Verse two has Everything But The Girl’s Tracey Thorn joining in on the listicle lyrics as the synthesizer-shake and doo wop backing vocals grow amidst the song. It’s a typically idiosyncratic lyrical and sonic mix from Grant.

Grey Tickles, Black Pressure will be released 2nd October on Bella Union.
