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.
