Canadian pop star Claire Boucher aka GRIMES shares a new music video for the song REALiTi. The track is not a teaser off her highly anticipated new album. It was originally planned for the record that was supposed to follow last year’s single Go but Bouche scrapped the plans for the entire record and started a new one from scratch.
GRIMES on the new song and video: ‘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.’
It’s still quite catchy, we must confess. Watch the joyful music video for REALiTi right here.
