Confirmed: Grimes confirms that her new album will be released this year

Grimes confirms that her new album will be released this year

She took to Twitter to quickly say that the follow-up to ‘Art Angels’ is coming.

Looks like Grimes’ follow-up to ‘Art Angels’ is well on its way!

She took to Twitter to respond to a Grimes news account posting about birthday of her album ‘Visions’, saying: “actually it’s 2012 so 6 yrs and a nu one out this year so 3 albums in 6 years is not a bad level of productivity… 7 years i’d be judging myself a bit”. Well, it may be a quick aside, but that’s confirmation that a new album is coming sometime this year! Hooray!

Recently, Grimes released a total of five new playlists on Spotify and also livestreamed a session of ‘Bloodborne’ alongside Purity Ring’s Megan James. In the livestream, which also contained a fan Q&A, she confirmed that she’ll be touring this year too, as well as that she’s written a song about playing ‘Dark Souls’… She also discussed her favourite movie and some great bands including Alvvays and Animal Collective.
