Today, Grimes shares her first new music since last year's single "We Appreciate Power" and the demo for “Pretty Dark.” Stream the track "Violence" below via a video directed by Grimes herself.
The song is a collaboration with techno DJ i_o. In an interview with Beats 1, Grimes told Zane Lowe:
I hit IO up and we made this song up in an hour. And then I was just like, “This must go on the album because it just feels good.” And, you know what, you know what? It’s just fresh. We just made this song a few months ago and I just needed to have something which felt fresh. It just felt… You know when you write a song so fast, it just feels perfect. It was like one of those. So I was like, “Let’s just throw it on.” I want to shoot a music video for something that I haven’t listened to a thousand times.
The song will presumably appear on the album Miss_Anthrop0cene that she announced on social media back in March.
