Video of the Moment #2386: Grandaddy

We live in a musical world where unexpected reunions happen and produce amazing results, which is pretty amazing in itself. One of the most recent success stories in this vein is the reformation of Grandaddy, led by frontman Jason Lytle. Back in March, they released ‘Last Place’, their first studio album together in 11 years. It’s a slow burner of a record, and they have unveiled the latest music video from the LP. The visuals of ‘Brush With the Wild’ star probably hopelessly doomed to be a nerd actor Jonah Ray. This certainly raised a smile for me, and I hope it does for you too.

About the song itself, Lytle said to NPR, “I had to be convinced it was okay to tell someone that I loved them or to just let my guard down. And then, once I did, it was almost like this wild, primal thing. But it only comes in little flashes. It’s like a fish swimming through the river and every now and then it’ll turn and the light will flash off its skin and you get a glimpse of it, then it’s gone. Lightning is like that. But you get to experience it very briefly. [So] I was thinking how sad and bummed out I was finding the relationship being done [but] at least I got to experience that. I got to brush up against it.” Some deep thoughts, eh? To catch up on all our coverage here on TGTF on Grandaddy, go here.

Following their break-up in 2006, the reformed Grandaddy recently announced their newest studio album will be out in the new year. ‘Last Place’, their first album in a decade, which is expected to be released on the 3rd of March 2017 on 30th Century Records. Last month, they revealed the song and video to ‘Way We Won’t, which we featured as this previous Video of the Moment. ‘A Lost Machine’ is the latest track to be unveiled from the upcoming long player, and the promo that accompanies it is described by their American press as “eerie”. Watch it below.

Get ready, hipsters: Grandaddy are back! After their breakup in 2006, their frontman Jason Lytle wasted no time in moving to Montana and happily making two solo albums. Following a further uprooting to Portland, he eventually found his way back to Modesto, California, where he felt he was in a place to write songs for a new Grandaddy album.

The fruits of his and his now reunited bandmates’ labour will be contained in ‘Last Place’, their first album in a decade, which is expected to be released on the 3rd of March 2017 on 30th Century Records. And for long-time fans in the UK, you’ll be happy about this development: they’ve announced a series of live dates in blighty in March and April (more details here). But hey! This is a Video of the Moment post, right? Check out early single ‘Way We Won’t’, a prime cut from the forthcoming album, in the video below. The song is understated in that uniquely West Coast way, but solid proof that Grandaddy are going to kill it when March comes round next year. Stay tuned.
