Grimes has written a song about the role-playing video game Dark Souls.
The singer, whose real name is Claire Boucher, live-streamed her playing PS4 game Bloodborne with Purity Ring‘s Megan James on Twitch recently, and answered questions from fans while gaming.
Grimes said she is playing to tour in 2018, but did not give any further details. Elsewhere, someone asked her if any Dark Souls samples would feature on her new album, to which she replied: “No, but I do have a song about Dark Souls, specifically.”

Last month, the musician suggested new music could be on the way soon, after a fan on Twitter suggested she “drop new music already” to help her get over the flu.

Boucher replied: “Just played label new music they rly dig it so hopefully smthn soon”.
The artist previously told fans in the summer she was “in the studio every day trying to legit make something you’ve never heard before.” She added: “Unexplored sonic landscapes. i need another month or 2 of pure unadulterated creativity at which point i will begin finishing tracks. won’t let u down”.
Before that, she had revealed she was working on “chill vibes, downtempo, synth-y shit” and said she wanted her next release to be “slower and more reflective”.
