In an interview with Q, Grimes has talked about some of the inspiration behind her forthcoming album, for which she has also revealed the album's name – Art Angels – and its artwork (by Grimes herself; above). The inspiration, or rather the background behind the songs, is unique, to say the least.

"One song on the album, ‘Kill V Maim’, is written from the perspective of Al Pacino in The Godfather Pt 2," says Grimes. "Except he's a vampire who can switch gender and travel through space."

Grimes also talked about a change of scene during the process of making the album:

"I wanted to get away from Hollywood bullshit. So I moved to Squamish, a small town in British Colombia. There was a lot of ‘crazy’ going on, but it was organised ‘crazy’ – like lying in the dark and seeing if I could hallucinate. It felt good, letting myself be a total fucking weirdo. And I had cookies."

The album will arrive later this month as a surprise iTunes release.

Grimes will also be heading out on tour in February 2016 – see dates for that here.
