stream grimes’ new album ‘art angels’ here
Listen to all 14 of the avant-pop goddess’ brand new tracks -- including her highly anticipated collab with Janelle Monáe.
After releasing a Dolly Parton-meets-Marie Antoinette video saga, sharing 14 pieces of original artwork on Tumblr, and revealing new tracks at live performances in LA and New York, Grimes has finally dropped Art Angels.
The LP is the synth pop warrior's fourth studio release, and the highly anticipated follow up to her 2012 electro-dream Visions. Art Angels contains 14 tracks, including two collaborations. Scream (which arrived last week) features Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes. Venus Fly, which sees vocal contributions from Janelle Monáe, is available to stream via Spotify for the very first time.
The Canadian singer and producer took to Twitter earlier to express emoji-laden disbelief at the album's positive reception, saying "Thank u everyone for being so nice I'm crying right now cuz I thought everyone was gonna hate it."
Grimes continues her North American "Rhinestone Cowgirl" tour with support from eerie pop prodigy Nicole Dollanganger. Catch her at Terminal 5 on November 16 and the Music Hall of Williamsburg on November 18.
