Another artist at the festival whom Live4ever featured in our Best Of… 2018 series, Grant’s summer touring last year’s Love Is Magic album will come to an end next month when he appears at the All Together Now event along side the likes of The National, Fontaines D.C., Loyle Carner and Patti Smith.

“This cavalcade of wit and bestial commentary ends with Touch And Go, a signature ballad that deals articulately with the ordeal of whistle-blower Chelsea Manning from the point of view of a non-judgemental bystander born to an information age which makes us all feel like we know everyone else by a single degree of separation,” our album review reads.

“It’s a fittingly conversational end to a record by what’s become one of contemporary music’s singular phenomena, a go-anywhere talent willing to smother his defining characteristics in favour of satirising himself, virtue and the limpness of our modern-day human spirit.”
