Take a look at a surprise new song from British artist/producer and multi-instrumentalist Jack Garratt called “Breathe Life”, off the upcoming release of his album Phase (out Feb 19th 2016 via Island). The record features recent single “Weathered” and previous EP tracks “The Love You’re Given” and “Chemical”. The video for “Breathe Life” was shot in Los Angeles, and directed by Andrew Donoho (Raury/Willis Earl Beal) who Jack also worked with on the “Weathered” video.
“Weathered” by Jack Garratt, from his forthing coming debut album, due for release in early 2016. Directed by Andrew Donoho (Raury/Gaslight Anthem/Willis Earl Beal) and shot on location in the canyons of Georgia (south of Atlanta), the video follows the adventures of three young brothers exploring a day out in the wilderness. It culminates in their discovery of a luminescent fungus (Foxfire) – a natural phenomenon that occurs annually in Georgia.

If there was only one song you could hear today, I’d wish it to be Jack Garratt‘s latest single “Weathered”. Since having my first listen before the weekend (and promising not to post it until today), I’ve been racking up the soundcloud listens all weekend for what I think is his strongest material yet. “Weathered” is the first single to be lifted from Jack’s forthcoming debut album, due for release in early 2016. Written, recorded, and co-produced by Jack, it follows the release of two acclaimed self-produced EPs and is the sound of a talented multi-instrumentalist coming into his own.
There’s some current buzz going for London artist Jack Garratt, especially for his latest James Blake sounding track “The Love You’re Given” released online a few days ago. I first heard this track the night before last before leaving work on my friend Nisha’s blog, who tipped me to an older (and I believe stronger) track “Worry”. Fantastic.
The latter comes Garratt’s 4-track EP, Remnants, released earlier this year.
