John Grant, former singer with The Czars, returns with his second solo album Pale Green Ghosts in March. If we are to judge the album by the title track alone, it's wildly different from the low-key solo debut Queen Of Denmark from 2010. "Pale Green Ghosts" sounds a lot more like Depeche Mode than Nick Drake to put it that way, and is a spellbinding song with more than a cinematic touch. That feeling is strengthened even more by the accompanying music video, shot in Iceland, where the album was recorded. It is also reported that Sinéad O'Connor contributes backing vocals to the album, but she is absent on this song. What is certain is that Pale Green Ghosts is worth waiting for.
