Jack Garratt is very pleased to share details of his second album for later this Spring, and his first new music since 2016.
‘Love, Death & Dancing’ will be released on the 29th May 2020 through Island Records. The music is performed solely by Jack, and produced alongside Jacknife Lee and James Flannigan. It is available for pre-order HERE
The record is preceded today by the sharing of three new songs, Vol. 1, Jack’s first new music since 2016’s ‘Phase’ LP.
Jack Garratt accompanies this deeply personal album with an equally reflective long-form visual piece, ‘Love, Death & Dancing – a film by Jack Garratt’, of which the first instalment ‘Time’ is out now on all major video platforms. View it HERE
Listen to Vol. 1, featuring ‘Time’, ‘Mara’, and ‘Return Them To The One’ HERE
In February, Jack heads out on a UK and European ‘Work In Progress’ tour to preview the new songs out on the road, ahead of further headline dates later in the year. The run of shows now includes two new London dates at Dalston’s EartH on the 9th and 10th March. Tickets for EartH are available from 9:00am on Friday 7th February at www.jackgarratt.com.
As he gears up to send ‘Love, Death & Dancing’ out into the world, Jack looks back on that period not with gratitude exactly, but with an appreciation of the wisdom it gave him – hard-won, maybe, but deeply precious, and an experience that armoured him for the battles ahead. If the process sounds hellish, ‘Love, Death & Dancing’, by contrast, is an ultimately joyous album. It isn’t afraid to lay bare the torment that led up to and informed its creation. But it is also a triumphant testament to survival, and to courage.
“I think this is the first time I’ve felt proud of the songs I’ve made. I wrote this album as someone – and for anyone – who likes dancing but doesn’t necessarily want to go out on a Saturday. It’s dance music for people who don’t want to go out! And that’s the music that I love: music that doesn’t care if you’re standing up or sitting down. It’s going to give it to you either way.”
