Toronto, ON – May 30, 2019 – On Friday, East Coast songstress, Jenn Grant, will release her gorgeous new album, Love, Inevitable, and today, she gives one last sneak peek at the record with the track, Sweet Grass. The song, which premiered on Exclaim.ca, is accompanied by a video inspired by the album artwork. Have a look and listen to the track here.
“I don't know what God is but I feel them in the little things that bring me joy,” reflects Grant. “Like sweet grass, and burning palo and the spiritual gifts we can give each other to feel some sense of spiritual connection.”
Love, Inevitable is the follow up to 2016’s Paradise, around which Consequence of Sound called out Grant’s “majestic vocals” and Stereogum noted she created “something that’s both a bit familiar and a little otherworldly.” This magical quality of the Halifax folk-pop singer’s songwriting and performance continues all around Love, Inevitable. Yet, the upcoming album marks a period of change in Grant’s life; after making four consecutive albums with her husband, Daniel Ledwell (and being nominated for a JUNO three-times), Grant teamed with Grammy-nominated American producer and engineer, Tucker Martine to record the new LP. Further, Grant went through a period of massive personal change – she discovered she was pregnant during the recording process. Love, Inevitable is and isn’t about motherhood. A direct conversation of motherhood is omitted and instead we’re left with an impression of this process; “Some of the guitar songs I wrote in this little window of a few days where I felt this kind of energy around me. I didn’t know I was pregnant yet and those were when those songs were written,” Grant reflects.
The record’s title comes from a moment when she heard Martine’s wife, Laura Veirs, singing the Daniel Johnston song, True Love Will Find You in the End. She found symmetry here, remembering how her husband used to sing her that song as well. The song reminds Grant of her own trek back to both herself and to finding her own family.
