John Grant has moved to Iceland and have teamed up with GusGus’ Biggi Veira for his second solo album “Pale Green Ghosts”. It will also feature the Irish singer Sinead O’Connor on guest vocals. “Black Belt” and the title track (watch the official video after the jump) promise a much more electronic and dirtier sound than the highly acclaimed, but slightly boring debut album “Queen of Denmark”.
The album will be released by Bella Union in UK on the 11th of March and Partisan Records in US 2 months later… And this is what I do not understand! Do Partisan Records expect to sell any copies at all (at least not digitally)? I mean, releasing the album over 60 days after it was made available in Europe is not a good business strategy – especially in an environment where the customer appreciate availability over quality…
Update: You can download the song by going here (the embedded code is a do not work for WordPress / stupid listen only on SoundCloud one…).
