The waiting is over — Grimes has an official release date and a double music video featuring two new tracks has hit the Internet.
The artist née Claire Boucher guested on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show Monday (Oct. 26) to premiere “Flesh Without Blood,” also the lead track in a bonkers new two-part music video. Upon release, it flew to No. 1 on the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140. In Grimes’ new video, the oddball banger is followed by the more mellow “Life in the Vivid Dream,” offering a stark contrast between the two but without any bit of conflict.
Watch the Boucher-written, directed, edited, colored and art directed piece here:
Grimes also revealed her track for Art Angels, which will be the 27-year-old artist’s fourth full-length studio album. It’s set to drop digitally on Nov. 6, with a physical version arriving Dec. 11.

1. laughing and not being normal
3. SCREAM [ft. Aristophanes]
4. Flesh without Blood
5. Belly of the beat
6. Kill V. Maim
11. World Princess part II

“Realiti” was shared earlier this year, though the rest of the opus is apparently new. Notably, it features collaborations with Janelle Monáe and the Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes.
Grimes posted to Twitter Monday, explaining a bit of what fans can expect from Art Angels:
+ fyi – every song on this album is a completely different style, so flesh isn’t a ‘representation’ of everything, just a taste of a vibe
