John Grant - On Language


Signed by both John Grant and Will Burns.

As one of the most strikingly original lyricists going, it’s entirely unsurprising that John Grant has a life-long interest in language and languages—from the academic solace he found in his school days upon discovering his talent for German, through to his love of Russian and the Icelandic language of his current home, Grant has found succour, relief and stimulation in words and how they work. In this fascinating interview with the writer Will Burns, John Grant’s passion for language provides the foundations for hilarious and heartbreaking digressions on his own life, on politics, on history, on music and much more—John Grant On Language functions as a compelling and unique portrait of an artist in, and through, words.
