I think we can all agree without any controversy whatsoever that Susanne Sundfør is one of the greatest artists of the last decade. Good, I’m glad you concur. And imagine if she collaborated with the also brilliant John Grant. Wouldn’t that be great! Yes, it would. Well, I have some great news for you: that is a thing that has happened.

The latest single from Sundfør’s upcoming ‘Music For People In Trouble’ album, due out on 25 Aug, is her collaboration with Grant, ‘Mountineers’.

Of Sundfør, Grant adds: “She blows my mind with her incredible voice”.
