Grimes writes theme song for new Netflix series ‘Hilda’ – listen

She soundtracks an animated series about a blue-haired girl who encounters strange monsters

Grimes has written the theme song for a new animated series on Netflix.

Hilda is about a fearless blue-haired girl who travels from a wilderness full of elves and giants to a city filled with new friends and mysterious creatures. It’s based on the comic book by British author Luke Pearson.

Grimes, whose real name is Claire Boucher, has soundtracked the new show with fizzing pop and her trademark bubblegum vocals. Listen below.


The art style for the series takes inspiration from Scandinavian folklore and tales.

Hilda is available worldwide on Netflix now.

In other news, Grimes was recently the subject of much gossip surrounding an apparent collaboration with Azealia Banks.

Banks claimed in August that Boucher failed to turn up to work on a song with her at the house of Boucher’s boyfriend, Tesla founder Elon Musk. The US rapper criticised the pair in several Instagram story posts.


Musk, however, later told Gizmodo that he had never met Banks. Grimes has not responded to Banks’ accusations.

Banks later wrote a letter to Musk in which she apologised for revealing intimate details about his personal life with Boucher.
