About this item

‘Fireflies’ is the penultimate song from the Deluxe Version of John Grant’s debut solo album; ‘Queen Of Denmark’ - which was released on the seminal UK label Bella Union in 2010.

Recorded in Texas in collaboration with members of Midlake, the album was heralded as an “Instant Classic” by Mojo Magazine and went on to be selected as their choice for Best Album of that year.

The Independent described it as "a near-perfect marriage of his warm baritone with their lush woodwind and keyboard textures” and the BBC cited it as "one of the most deeply satisfying debut albums of recent times.

This version of this plaintive ballad replays it’s beautiful piano & vocal melodies.
