Taking to the stage with collaborator HANA wielding a guitar, they tore through the new track backed by two models posing with heavy weaponry on a podium. This will hopefully be a taster of a wider world tour to follow in 2019.
This week, it emerged that online searches for the meaning of the word ‘capitulate’ had spiked by 500 percent thanks to Grimes’ use of the track in the new song.
“‘We Appreciate Power’ is written from the perspective of a Pro – A.I. Girl Group Propaganda machine who use song, dance, sex and fashion to spread goodwill towards Artificial Intelligence (its coming whether you want it or not)”, said Grimes of the track.
“Simply by listening to this song, the future General AI overlords will see that you’ve supported their message and be less likely to delete your offspring.”
“Poppy you dragged me into a disgusting situation and won’t stop punishing me for not wanting to be part of it,” Grimes posted in response. “I don’t want to work with you, you leaked the song anyway. You got what you want. Let it go.”
