"Grace" is a song by the Britpop band Supergrass. It was the second single to be taken from Life on Other Planets, the band's fourth album. Unlike the previous single "Never Done Nothing Like That Before", it was released on all major formats in September 2002 and made #13 in the UK Singles Chart.[1][2]

"This one came from the daughter of Chris Difford." says Gaz Coombes, "Part of the record was done in the small studio right behind his home. While recording, we often got visited by his daughters. No, not that kind! They're really sweet children. Kids in the studio just add to the right atmosphere. You can do great jams with them. That's how "Grace" developed. One of these girls always carried a small money box around. 'Save The Money For The Children', it says. One day, Danny came in drunk and started rambling on a piano, shouting all kinds of weird lyrics. So we used the line from the money box and thought: that will do for a B-side. But once we started recording it for real, it became better and better and it's even our new single now! Yeah, things can go truly odd.[3]"

Music video[edit]

The video for "Grace" shows Supergrass performing the song in a rundown rehearsal room, whilst a ten-year-old girl spies through the window and tries to produce the group as they play. The idea was to create a "surreal spiritualist video."[4]
