Grimes claims her new album will be released in September

Canadian musician reveals prospective release date with fan on Twitter

Grimes has hinted that her new album will be released in September.

The singer, who released her latest album ‘Visions’ in 2012, is due to release a follow up imminently. Anticipation for the release follows the recent news that the Canadian artist has signed to Jay-Z‘s management company Roc Nation. The specifics of Grimes’ deal with Roc Nation are not yet known, but other artists who have management deals with the company include Rihanna, Haim and Timbaland.

Now, Grimes has suggested that her new album will come out on September 9. Responding to an MIA fansite on Twitter, Grimes revealed the prospective release date and added “I think”.


Late last year (December 3), Grimes shared a list of her favourite songs of all time, with tracks by Paramore, Mariah Carey and Dolly Parton all making the cut. The Canadian musician, real name Claire Boucher, shared the list with fans via her Tumblr. The eclectic list also included artists such as Burial, Portishead and Animal Collective alongside Rihanna, Taylor Swift and Skrillex.

Grimes was recently involved in a row with New York band Diiv after she discussed her own take on veganism, which includes occasionally eating ice cream made from cows’ milk. The US band hit back at her rules of the dietary choice, saying what Grimes practises “is not veganism”.
