John Grant recently released Love is Magic, an album filled with his unique outlook on life and love, as well as tons of synth-y goodness.

While Grant's humor is in full force with songs like “Diet Gum,” there’s plenty of vulnerability here too. On a recent trip to New York for a show in Brooklyn, he stopped by WFUV to talk about the genesis of the new album, nostalgia in video games, and more. 

Listen to that conversation and watch great live versions of “Is He Strange” and the album’s closing song, “Touch and Go.”
