The wonderfully idiosyncratic John Grant returns with a new album Pale Green Ghosts next month. It would be tough for anybody to follow up an album as extraordinary as Queen Of Denmark, but Grant is not most people. The album features Sinead O’Connor on guest vocals, too. On Saturday, May 4, he’s going to be playing Cyprus Avenue in Cork, a city he visited on his last tour – and a gig that I missed out on. It is sure to be a night you won’t want to miss. Wonder will Sinead turn up… Expect more Irish dates to be announced soon. Tickets for the Cork show go on sale from Friday. Below is a video for the title track of Grant’s second album.
