With the new album due on October 12th, an animated video for John Grant‘s latest Love Is Magic track He’s Got His Mother’s Hips has been premiered.

“Always a delight to work with John,” says Casey of directors Casey & Ewan. “For this disco-tinged track we decided to get some of the hardest-partying animators we knew together for a right old knees-up, and this was the result.” Ewan adds:

“I just thought it was about time for another Peter Gabriel ‘Sledgehammer’ video and John was up for it. 13 animators in total, including us – unlucky for some. The highlight for me was 24 hours in in the cool drizzle of Iceland to meet up with John, at the height of the British heat wave.”

Some UK gigs are coming up next month ahead of a full tour in January/February 2019.
