MP3: Listen to the “Black Belt (Hercules & Love Affair Remix)” via EXCLAIM!

(April 18, 2013 – Toronto, ON) After releasing his new album Pale Green Ghosts to rave reviews in the UK, John Grant is preparing for the forthcoming May 14th North American release today by sharing Hercules & Love Affair’s remix of the early single “Black Belt.” Hercules & Love Affair give the track a simple yet effective rework – flipping the already-bouncy track into an even more club appropriate affair complete with handclaps and cowbells. This comes in conjunction with the announcement of a proper run of Canadian and US tour dates for John Grant, kicking off with a performance at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City next week. Check out the new track above and see below for all upcoming live John Grant dates.

“It’s hard to imagine a more enjoyable and rewarding hour of music being released this year than Pale Green Ghosts: self-obsessed but completely compelling, profoundly discomforting but beautiful, lost in its own fathomless personal misery, but warm, funny and wise.” – The Guardian – 5 Stars ***** (Album Of The Week)

“An album that, rather than juggling empty pop–song clichés, opts to expose the rawest emotional nerves: truth and beauty, rather than lies and blather.” – The Independent – 4 Stars **** (Album Of The Week)

“The abrupt changes between lush vintage balladry and stark electro ensure that Pale Green Ghosts is not as instantly cohesive as Queen Of Denmark. But it is arguably more  satisfying, in its artistic courage, its refusal to meet expectations, and its willingness to paint a brand new picture of a gay demi-monde where the triumphs and tragedies have a deeper resonance than simple melodrama or camp… A masterpiece” – UNCUT – 8/10
