Finally, Grimes has shared a new video! But it’s for a track that won’t even be appearing on her new album. Originally a demo from 2013, the song is explained as “not mixed or mastered”. Claire Boucher, AKA Grimes, went on with “I tried to doctor the MP3 into a listenable state, but it was poorly recorded in the first place and never meant to be heard by anyone, so it’s a bit of a mess haha.”
Marking the two year anniversary of Grimes visiting Asia for the first time, ‘REALiTi’ has been presented as “a special thank you to everyone in Singapore, KL, Manila, Jakarta, HK, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Seoul, Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo who came out to the shows! It was an honor to play with a bunch of amazing bands and travel to places I would never otherwise be able to go.”
With this very vague blip on the radar since her 2012 release of Visions, and maybe the odd activity on SoundCloud, we are more than eager to see if the rumours of a future double album with US MC Lizzo are true.
