As it happens, they're inspired choices. The first single 'Now It's On' careers along on a tune as gloriously upbeat as an episode of Sesame Street, while 'Yeah Is What We Had' is so heartbreakingly beautiful it'd make a pitbull well up.

With the follicly-enhanced likes of Kings Of Leon and The Warlocks in vogue, it's good to have Grandaddy back to ensure things stay really hairy.
