Grimes unveils woodland-set sci-fi video for new track 'Nightmusic' – watch
Claire Boucher will also play a second show at London's Heaven on September 6
Directed by John Londono, the woodland-set, sci-fi gothic video is the second to come from her fourth album, 'Visions'. It follows 'Oblivion', which saw the Canadian artist running amok in various sports stadiums.
Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, recently said to The Guardian of 'Visions': "I was convinced my music was a gift from God. It was like I knew exactly what to do next, as if my songs were already written."
Meanwhile, the singer has been channelling her creativity into jewellery design, teaming up with Montreal-based jeweller and sculptor Morgan Black to create 'Grimes Pussy Rings'. The singer recently posted an image of the colourful, sculpted vagina designs on her Tumblr.
Grimes has also just announced a new date at London's Heaven venue on September 6 after the show set for the day before sold out. She will be playing a host of UK festivals over the summer, including Brighton's Great Escape tomorrow (May 11), as well as Field Day, Reading and Leeds Festivals and Bestival. She plays Manchester Islington Mill tonight (May 10).
