Grimes Details New Record ‘Art Angels’

Today, Grimes releases her self-directed video for 'Flesh without Blood' / 'Life in the Vivid Dream', from her forthcoming album Art Angels, out digitally on 6th November 2015.

Spanning fourteen tracks, the new album features collaborations with Janelle Monáe and newcomer, Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes.  It was recorded primarily in her home studio in Los Angeles, CA, where she relocated to in 2014.  Like all of her previous albums, Art Angels was written and recorded entirely as a solo endeavour.  The new album features more live instrumentation than ever before on a Grimes record.  She plays piano, guitar and violin, continuing her evolution as a musician and a producer for her most ambitious album to date.

You can watch the new video to 'Flesh without Blood' / 'Life in the Vivid Dream' here, or in the player below.  You can stream on Spotify here.  Head to actuallygrimes.tumblr.com for more details on the record. 

Grimes kicked off a month of North American dates on her Rhinestone Cowgirls tour on Saturday in Santa Ana, CA.  Dates in South Korea, Japan, Europe and the Laneway Festival in Singapore, New Zealand and Australia are confirmed for early 2016.  Find all shows and links at grimesmusic.com, or see the list below.
