Currently in the Top 10 with his new album Boy From Michigan, released last month via Bella Union, John Grant today shares a mesmerising montage video for new single “County Fair” created by visionary filmmaker Jonathan Caouette. Commenting on the track and video Caouette says: “When I was 12, growing up in Texas, I briefly worked at a kid’s theme park that had been around since the 1940s. I would also go to rodeo carnivals and various county fairs, along with Astroworld, an amusement park that you could almost see from my house. There was great joy in those places, but also a darkness. ‘County Fair’ is enigmatic and shimmering. It’s all of these places for me. It’s a song that knows where I live. Thank you to filmmaker Teddy Smith for allowing me to use moments from his film, ‘Abandoned Six Flags Tour’, for this mashup.” The video, which feature images of Grant as a teenager and a young boy, can be viewed here:
