Watch John Grant Visits Gay Sauna In New Video 'Disappointing'


John Grant goes “down a rabbit hole of a gay sauna” in new video for ‘Disappointing’.


John Grant is back with his new single from his third album Grey Tickles, Black Pressure. 

Disappointing is a collaboration with Tracey Thorn and the video takes Grant on a journey through a dimly lit gay sauna.

“The idea for the promo came very clearly to me,” explains director David Wilson, who is perhaps best known for directing Arcade Fire’s We Exist.

“I pitched the idea of John being surrounded by men and objects that would be temptations or distractions from a monogamous relationship.

“This concept then developed into the camera becoming distracted by these temptations, and for John to be steadfast: addressing the viewer, often appearing, as if by magic at the beginning and end of long, flowing camera moves. It’s been fun to treat the camera as an entity in itself: not quite a person, more a point-of-view that continually veers away from John and go down a rabbit hole of a gay sauna.”

Grant’s album Grey Tickles, Black Pressure is released on October 2.
