This blog is supposed to be Asian pop music only, but since Grimes is a loud and proud K-pop stan who has dedicated her new music video “Realiti” to all the fans that came out for her Asia tour in 2013, I figured I could make an exception.
Plus, G-Dragon makes a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance! It must have been so strange for him to hear what good music sounds like for once…
“This song was never finished,” wrote Grimes. “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.”
No need to apologize, Grimes. This is MUCH better than that rejected Rihanna song you released last year. If her new album ends up being a bunch of overproduced Roc Nation shit à la Kanye “Only stupid corny pretentious Americans like me” West, then hopefully Grimes will leak ~ the lost album ~ so the rest of us can enjoy her ghostly vocals and lush bedroom synths.
Not that I think Grimes would release an entire album of “Go,” but you just never know with artists these days.
