Titled "Pretty Dark," the demo arrived alongside a video, which you can find below.
"This is from an AR musical im working on," Grimes wrote in an accompanying statement, adding that it would not appear on her forthcoming fifth studio album.
She continued: "while im finishing my album im just gonna start casually dropping stuff as I see fit. Been doing this exercise where I try to write and produce a whole song in like ~1-2 hrs... fuck technical proficiency and whatnot."
You can read Grimes' entire update in the video description here. Her last album was 2015's Art Angels. On Twitter, she wrote that her follow-up effort "is 2 ambitious/ taking too long"
