Grimes shows a vulnerable side on Lil Peep inspired single ‘Delete Forever’

Kelly Doherty

With her upcoming album Miss Anthropocene just around the corner, Grimes has dropped another single ‘Delete Forever’.

‘Delete Forever’ is a major change of direction for the experimental pop star. Banjo-led and flirting more than just a little with the radio country-pop of the early noughties, it’s an interesting approach that provides Grimes with a little more emotional vulnerability than her usual outings.

“I guess it’s kind of about the opioid epidemic…I’ve had quite a few friends pass away, in particular, one friend when I was 18 passed away from complications related to opioid addiction.” Grimes told Zane Lowe on a recent Apple Beats 1 episode. “Artists keep dying and stuff so I wrote this song on the night Lil Peep died.”

Miss Anthropocene is out on February 21.
