John Grant is one of the more unique songwriters in music. Armed with a dark sense of humor and a love for electronic music, his new album Grey Tickles, Black Pressure may be his strongest work to date.

Going into this album, Grant set a self-imposed deadline to finish the writing portion of the songs. The result is a focused effort, equal parts funny and beautiful. We talked about John's struggle with depression and acceptance, his views on his songwriting and lots more.

Check out incredible live versions of "Global Warming" and the title track.
