Grimes has shared a song about putting her cat on a diet.

The track, which was recorded in 2009, is a collaboration with Devon Welsh of Majical Cloudz, with whom she owned the cat, named Voignamir. Grimes – real name Clare Boucher – posted the 'indie rock' song on her Tumblr. Listen to the track by clicking here.

Writing about the song, she said: "Ooooh my gosh... found this song on my computer that me and Dev of Majical Cloudz made in like 2009 about our cat Voignamir who at the time was on very bad terms with us because we were forcing him to diet and so he was like, very violent but literally like 20 or 30 pounds. I don't know why it sounds like indie rock haha, neither of us really make music like this".

Grimes is rumoured to be releasing a new album – the follow-up to her 2012 album 'Visions' – later this year. She recently unveiled a brand new song, called 'Go'. Speaking about the song, which is the first new material from the artist in almost two years, she commented: "It's our summer jam so we figured we should put it out cuz I am very bored of waiting to finish my album b4 releasing new music haha." 'Go' can be downloaded for free from Grimes' website at
