Grimes is planning to release her new album at some point in October, an interview with Dazed has revealed. Although the exact release date will only be announced the day before it is made available on iTunes.

“Lyrically, it’s more political and less abstract than before”, she says of the content of the record. “Like, really trippy free association about nature and shit. There’s a song that’s from the perspective of a butterfly in the Amazon as people are cutting down trees; there’s a song that’s from the perspective of angels who are polluted, so they’re crying polluted tears. I feel like it’s more about the Earth. I think I was more in society when I was making it, so it feels more grounded”.

“I think my music used to be more escapist. ‘Visions’ didn’t really acknowledge reality, but this record is more about looking reality in the face”, she adds.
