Jack Garratt Love, Death and Dancing 180g Vinyl 2LP
Love, Death & Dancing is British artist Jack Garratt's highly anticipated new album and first new music since 2016. The deeply personal collection contains 12 tracks produced by Garratt with additional production on several tracks by Jacknife Lee, long-time friend James Flannigan, and Brett Cox. The album compiles all four individual volumes of Love, Death & Dancing and kicks off with the lead single "Time." Love, Death & Dancing 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.
Musically, Love, Death & Dancing reflects its lyrical content, moments of mellifluous beauty and calm giving way to outbreaks of cacophonous anxiety and manic energy. If the bluesy spaciousness of "Anyone" recalls Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac, "Mara" conjures the production work of Lindsey Buckingham circa Tusk, while "Time" could be the offspring of both "Baba O'Reilly" and "Boys of Summer."
The anguished, propulsive "Better," meanwhile, channels the Beach Boys, Daft Punk and "Beat It," and the enraged, accusatory "Mend a Heart" honors the legacy of Cupid and Psyche 85. Throughout, Jack's extraordinary voice - equal parts soul and blues - soars and swoops, communicating desperation one minute and rapture the next. You never doubt that he means it. You never doubt it's the truth, unfiltered, unapologetic, laid bare.
"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," Garratt says.
