MP3: “Black Belt (Hercules & Love Affair Remix)”

After releasing his new album Pale Green Ghosts to rave reviews in the UK, John Grant is preparing for the forthcoming May 14th release of the album today by sharing Hercules & Love Affair’s remix of early single “Black Belt.” Hercules & Love Affair give the track a simple yet effective rework – flipping the already-bouncy track into an even more club appropriate affair complete with handclaps and cowbells. This comes in conjunction with the announcement of a proper run of US tour dates for John Grant, kicking off with a performance at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City next week. Check out the new track above and see below for all upcoming live John Grant dates.
