Grimes 'Miss Anthropocene Rave Edition': Release date, concept, tracklist and all about Elon Musk's girlfriend's New Year project
Grimes did not make any announcements on her social media accounts, however, the official digital platforms of the singer have now been updated with new covers that point towards her new album
Alt-pop musician Grimes, who is also known for her relationship with business magnate Elon Musk, is all set to drop a remix album of her much-acclaimed 2020 ‘Miss Anthropocene’ album. The new project of the Candian singer-songwriter has been titled ‘Miss Anthropocene Rave Edition’ and she has been teasing the same since April.
The 32-year-old experimental musician did not make any announcements on her social media accounts, however, the official digital platforms of the singer have now been updated with new covers that point towards her new album. Grimes had dropped her fifth studio album ‘Miss Anthropocene’ in February 2020 which was a follow-up to her 2015 album ‘Art Angels.’ The 2020 album included hit singles like ‘My Name is Dark’, ‘Delete Forever’ and ‘Violence’ among others.
According to the website Fader, streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music now feature new cover art that displays a black-and-white illustration that the Cyberpunk 2077 star commissioned from Leejm long ago. The fresh artwork centers on an elfin-looking woman as she stabs a sword through a planet and blood seeps out of the cut. According to the site, Grimes had posted the same picture in April 2020 revealing that this was the actual cover she wanted for her 2020 album.
In a detailed Instagram post, she had shared, “This was the original Miss Anthropocene album cover which I commissioned from one of my *favourite* artists @rupid79m. I polled a bunch of ppl and everyone said not to use it but I wish I trusted my gut. I f**king LOVE this painting. Maybe there’s a way to utilize it still (very open to ideas if u guys have ideas). I also love commissioning and/ or buying prints and art. It’s something I just got into this year. It’s a great way to support visual artists during the quarantine. Some Artists I dig are @wlop @ya.hime @vickisigh @belgeist.”
She added, “Normally I draw the covers myself I just wasn’t feeling it for miss A after like ten failed album covers. Ps I love what we did w Ryder and Gmunk. Not hating on that just wish I’d even kept this as the illustration in the program maybe instead of my drawing which.. is fine but not blowing my mind haha.”
