Video: Grant-Lee Phillips “Gather Up”

Check out the surreal new video from Grant-Lee Phillips.  The soulful troubadour reflects on the track’s inspiration: “When I was kid, I was forever being dragged off with my grandparents to some little country church.  The folks were always friendly as the long cars pulled up into the gravel driveway. Everyone in their Sunday best – my grandpa in a suit, grandma in a flowered dress. Once in the pews, the mood would sometimes darken with the threat of some cataclysm.

There was also music. A guttural kind of music that comes out of the mouth of an old man and an overdriven amplifier. Those things stuck with me.”  It’s the third release from forthcoming album ‘Lightning, Show Us Your Stuff’, due out on 4th September.  The words of his young daughter inspired the title of his tenth solo record.  The new album is produced by Phillips, who also features on vocals, guitar, piano and organ.  Clearly, the Nashville-based singer-songwriter knows what he’s doing.  Look out for the new album, which promises to be typically gritty, soulful, foot-tapping stuff.
