Watch: Grimes unveils video for unheard track, ‘REALiTi’

Grimes unveils video for unheard track, ‘REALiTi’

Track was scrapped from the follow-up to ‘Visions’.

Grimes has shared a new video for ‘REALiTi’, a previously unheard track taken from the sessions for her ‘Visions’ follow-up. 

The track was initially scrapped last year, when Claire Boucher decided to start from scratch on new material. 

In a video description, Grimes says: “Since this is no longer gonna be on the album, I’m releasing it 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!”

Referring to the audio quality, she says: “I lost the Ableton file, so its not mixed or mastered. 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 its a bit of a mess haha.”

The follow-up to 2012’s ‘Visions’ is anticipated for late 2015. She’s been working with Lizzo on new material.
