In 2016 Jack Garratt released his debut album ‘Phase’ on Island Records. The multi-instrumentalist wrote, arranged and performed every track.
In the same year Garratt was awarded a number of prestigious British music accolades and embarked on a world tour, ending in two sold out nights at London’s Hammersmith Apollo in 2017. In the immediate aftermath Garratt wrote and swiftly discarded a draft of album two, before setting up in the studio with co-producers James Flannigan and Jacknife Lee – embarking on what would become his sophomore album ‘Love, Death & Dancing’. In February 2020 Vol. 1 of the album (tracks 1 – 3) was unleashed into the world with lead single ‘Time’ receiving its first play as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record In The World on BBC Radio 1. Jack has described ‘Love, Death & Dancing’ as, “dance music for people who don’t want to go out,” and detailed how it chronicles his battle with depression, anxiety, and self-doubt. The new album is out June 12th 2020.
