Track of the Day: 'I Try To Talk To You' by Hercules & Love Affair

Featuring the wonderful voice of Mr John Grant, this track is taken from the forthcoming Hercules & Love Affair album 'The Feast of the Broken Heart' which will be out in May. The song has already gained some degree of notoriety, as Grant tackles the subject of becoming HIV positive in the lyrics. Happily, despite the weighty themes, it's a pretty upbeat track, with a brilliant flourish of piano bringing a hint of disco camp to the proceedings. Following on from Grant's 'Pale Green Ghosts' album, this is another step down the road to him becoming the disco diva we all know he is deep inside.
