Grimes Promises Surprise Album Release in October

Grimes Promises Surprise Album Release in October
We knew that Grimes had a new album in the works, but we had no idea when it would be arriving, and she even scrapped all her work and started from scratch. Now, the quirky Canadian electro-pop songwriter has revealed that it will be out in October.

She confirmed the news in response to a fan's tweet. Moreover, she said that the album will be a surprise release (à la Beyoncé) since songs are meant to be heard as a whole.

But even though the material is meant to be a cohesive body of work, she noted that all of the tracks sound very different from one another. She's even planning to release two simultaneous singles in order to emphasize the diversity. It's apparently a big change from anything she's done before.
