John Grant has shared "All That School For Nothing", which is the latest single to be taken from his sixth studio album, The Art Of The Lie.

Having previously shared a trailer for the album and recent tracks "It's A Bitch", “The Child Catcher”, John Grant shares his brand new single, “All That School For Nothing”.

Commenting on the track Grant says: “This is a song I wrote for Blondie, but they didn’t want it, so I decided to reclaim it for myself. It was much more electronic at first but when I sang it, it became clear that it was much more of a Cameo or Whodini vibe, which I’m all for!”

Grant has also announced news of three record shop in-store appearances for the week of release, in London, Brighton and Nottingham. The in-store appearances will include a stripped-back performance from Grant, and a Q&A featuring Ivor Guest who produced the album.

The Art Of The Lie due for release on 14 June via Bella Union and available to pre-order now. For more information on the in-store performances, visit
