Grimes is really ramping up the release of her highly anticipated new album, Art Angels. Earlier this week she released the album’s lead single “Flesh Without Blood” (along with an excerpt of album cut “Life in the Void”). At midnight on Friday Ms. Claire Boucher unveiled a second single from the upcoming 14-track album: “SCREAM”.
Like “Flesh Without Blood”, “SCREAM” is heavily influenced by fuzzed-out guitar pop, tip-toeing the line between sounding like “Since U Been Gone” and a Sleigh Bells number. The track features, along with a ton of monster-like screams, charismatic Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes, who effortlessly spits, murmurs, and coos like an East Asian Britney Spears.
Listen below; Art Angels is out November 6 digitally and December 11 physically.
