By Alex HudsonCanadian up-and-comer Grimes has been earning a lot of attention in the indie music world as of late, and her forthcoming Visions looks to be one of the most hyped-up releases of early 2012. Well, the whole thing just got even more exciting now that the songwriter also known as Claire Boucher has signed with 4AD.
The album was originally slated to arrive on January 31 via Arbutus Records, but the date has now been pushed back to February 21 in North America and March 12 around the world. Gorilla vs. Bear notes that it will still be coming out in Canada via Arbutus. Everywhere else, however, it will be via 4AD.
As you may already know, 4AD is an iconic British indie label whose roster includes artists like Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, St. Vincent, Bon Iver, Deerhunter and more.
