With a new album coming in just a week, Grimes is hitting it hard to promote the new album Miss Anthropocene. Though she’s expecting her first child, you wouldn’t know when you see the video for her new single “Delete Forever.” While the video has all the wild you’d expect from the producer, the song has plenty of tender notes that pull you in.
the song opens with acoustic guitar, hooking you from the jump. Grimes’ vocals come off here as tender and honest and without compromise. The upbeat track gets met with a beat that’s hard to shy away from while varying beats and synths dance around in the foreground. The video is colorful and to some may seem strange, but for Grimes it works on multiple levels. Sitting in a place that looks like it’s just gone through a war, the setting seems to fit perfectly.
The video can be viewed above or on YouTube. The song can be streamed on all platforms. Miss Anthropocene is ready to be preordered directly from 4AD Records ahead of its February 21 release date. There are no scheduled tour dates for Grimes at this time.
