Grimes has shared a surprise new mixtape. The 30-minute mix includes a range of her favourite music, including tracks from Aphex Twin, Kelsey Lu, Animal Collective, her tour mate Hana and more, and was compiled, somewhat surprisingly, for a BBC Radio 3 show, Late Junction.

Introducing the session, Grimes explains, "I tried to include a mix of weird stuff that I like that's old and some newer stuff that I love that inspires me and my all time favourite songs".

It's been a busy few months for the pink-haired musician. She recently starred alongside Amandla Stenberg in Stella McCartney's new fragrance campaign and her latest Album Art Angels was announced as making the shortlist for the 2016 Polaris Music Prize last week. Listen to her new mix here.
