Bull By The Horns

Melancholy has been singer John Grant’s hallmark, but a mid-life nightmare has managed to lift him to lighter, happier heights. Interview by Marc Andrews.

JOHN GRANT IS the voice of a generation. That was the title bestowed upon the American-nowbased-in-Iceland artist by a Britishmagazine last year after the release of his third solo album. Grey Tickles, Black Pressures, which swerves cannily between dark electro melancholy and a twisted, almost sinister indie rock, shifts John’s game to a whole new level. He’s become a chart artist whose albums hit the top 10 around the world, has collaborated with the likes of Goldfrapp, Sinead O’Connor and Elton John and earned a prestigious Best International Male Solo Artist nomination at the 2014 Brit Awards.

It was 2013’s Pale Green Ghosts that saw John win accolades, glowing critical acclaim and, finally, a mainstream audience. Pale Green Ghosts was also the album where he came out as HIV-positive, still a big step in an era when Andy Bell, Holly Johnson and Charlie Sheen are among the only visible positive celebrities. It became a major talking point for John who, in interviews, discussed his state of mind both before and after his diagnosis.
