Grimes at Work on New Album

Ever since the 2012 release of Visions, audiences have been waiting to fill the Grimes-size hole in their hearts. Grimes took to Twitter earlier this week teasing a supposed release date of Sept. 9, for the forthcoming release of her new album.

In 2012, she told MTV Hive, “I want to make dark percussive shit and… release an album that’s halfway between ethereal reggaeton and industrial dance music but is still very pop in its song [structures].” In contrast to her Twitter statement, a representative told Pitchfork there is not a set release date as of yet.

Since signing to Jay Z’s label Roc Nation, we’re waiting for this “more experimental” installment from the electronic musician. Being a very active social media presence, keep an eye on Grimes’ Tumblr and Twitter for more updates—and pieces on her love for Dolly Parton and Beyonce.
