In the Grace of Your Love is the third and final full-length album by dance-punk band The Rapture and the first without former bassist Mattie Safer. The album was released on September 2, 2011. The album marks their return to DFA Records after leaving Universal Music Group. The cover features a picture of band member Luke Jenner's father.
Following the end of touring for previous album Pieces of the People We Love frontman Luke Jenner left the band, feeling "confused" and mourning the suicide of his mother. At the time Jenner was also in conflict with fellow songwriter Mattie Safer on the musical direction the band should take. Jenner considered making a solo record, but ultimately asked to rejoin the band. A few months later Safer left the band, and the remaining members started writing the new album from scratch. The band recorded the album with producer Phillipe Zdar in Paris. Zdar had just finished recording Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix with Phoenix and feeling tired initially rejected working with the band, but later agreed to after hearing the demos.
The album was announced on May 23, 2011, one day after the predicted BiblicalRapture by Harold Camping had been widely publicised, but failed to arrive. Drummer Vito Roccoforte commented on the timing "In terms of publicity, it was amazing for us... We couldn't have paid for that or done anything else that would have been better".
Lyrically songs focus on Jenner's mourning for his mother ("Miss You", "Children") and his coping with fatherhood ("Sail Away", "It Takes Time to Be a Man").Gospel music has also been cited as a source of inspiration for the band during recording.
To promote the album on August 16, 2011, the band streamed a video of the entire album playing on vinyl via Ustream. The band also answered questions from Twitter in the DFA Records office.
