Published Mar 09, 2015Canadian electro-pop goddess Grimes made headlines when she scrapped work on her full-length follow-up to Visions last year. Now, a song called "REALiTi" from the discarded sessions has been released and given the video treatment.
The colourful clip features footage from Grimes' recent touring stint across Asia. From the bright lights of big cities to tropical scenery to shots from live shows, it's a collection of what look like pretty fond memories. Grimes directed and edited the visuals herself.
The video's full description, reads:
since this is no longer gonna be on the album, I'm releasing it as a special thank you to everyone in Singapore, KL, Manila, Jakarta, HK, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Seoul, Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo who came out to the shows! It was an honor to play with a bunch of amazing bands and travel to places I would never otherwise be able to go
This song was never finished. its a demo from ~ the lost album ~, recorded early 2013. i lost the ableton file, so its not mixed or mastered. i tried to doctor the mp3 into a listenable state, but it was poorly recorded in the first place and never meant to be heard by anyone, so its a bit of a mess haha.
Give the video for "REALiTi" a watch below.
