Song was liberated to celebrate two years since Grimes toured Asia
Grimes has revealed a new song and video. Scroll down to watch the ‘REALiTi’ video now.
‘REALiTi’ will not appear on the new Grimes album and is a demo dating back to 2013. Writing an explanation of the songs origins on YouTube, the artist also known as Claire Boucher wrote: “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.”
Boucher also explained that, “this is no longer gonna be on the album,” presumably referencing the follow up to 2012 album ‘Visions’.
‘REALiTi’ marks the two year anniversary of Grimes visiting Asia for the first time and is meant 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! It was an honor to play with a bunch of amazing bands and travel to places I would never otherwise be able to go.”
Last year Grimes confirmed that she has worked with US MC Lizzo on her new album and hinted that the record could be a double album.
