Grimes adds to the imagery surrounding her latest 'Art Angels'
Grimes has unveiled her new video, a seven-minute epic for ‘Flesh Without Blood/Life In The Vivid Dream’, the first official release from fourth album ‘Art Angels’.
Claire Boucher – who uses Grimes as a stage name – has been teasing her latest ‘Art Angels’ over the past few days, and performed some songs from the album at Beach Goth 4 Festival in California on Saturday (October 24).
Grimes also previewed a few glances at the new material in an Instagram post earlier this week. She had previously stated that the album is inspired by Bruce Springsteen and the movie ‘The Godfather’.
