John Grant debuts racy music video set in sauna

By Nick Bond

Well, we’re calling it: 2015 is officially the year of the sauna in music videos.

First Will Young set the video for single Thank You in a sauna, surrounded by towel-clad male dancers. Then Australian singer-songwriter Jack Colwell disrobed for a sauna sesh for his latest single, Don’t Cry These Tears.

Now, gay singer-songwriter – and one-time Attitude Man of the Year award winner – John Grant has dropped the video for new single Disappointing on YouTube, set – where else? – in a sauna.


The single is a duet between Grant and former Everything But The Girl frontwoman Tracey Thorn, and while she’s not seen in the video, there is a cameo from everyone’s favourite dance music ginger, Hercules & Love Affair’s Andy Butler (pictured above – phwoar).

As you’d expect, it’s a pretty steamy affair – take a look:

The song is lifted from his new album Grey Tickles, Black Pressure, due for release next month.
