Grimes offers a brief overview of new album ‘Miss_Anthropocene’

The indie-electro star Grimes has offered the first overview of her upcoming brand new album Miss_Anthropocene on her social media accounts. The singer-songwriter offered up the overview by way of safeguarding herself against possible misrepresentation in the media.

“It’s a concept album about the anthropomorphic Goddess of climate Change,” she writes in the lengthy caption. “A psychedelic, space-dwelling demon/ beauty-Queen who relishes the end of the world. She’s composed of Ivory and Oil.

“Each song will be a different embodiment of human extinction as depicted through a Pop star Demonology,” she adds. “The first song ‘we appreciate power’, introduced the pro-AI-propaganda girl group who embody our potential enslavement/destruction at the hands of Artificial General intelligence.” There’s no release date set yet but we’re hoping it will be this year.

She added that it may not be the only release of new music from the star. “It’s possible I will drop an EP or a few more singles of synth-based stuff b4 the album, because its mostly ethereal nu metal (ish), and I know a lot of ppl miss the synths and whatnot.”

Take a look at the post below and listen to ‘we appreciate power’ below that.

I thought the writer was quite smart so hopefully it’s accurate haha. But just in case (cuz I’ve had some p fucked press drama this year) I’m announcing album here first: ———————————-??It’s called Miss_Anthropocene. It’s a concept album about the anthropomorphic Goddess of climate Change: A psychedelic, space-dwelling demon/ beauty-Queen who relishes the end of the world. She’s composed of Ivory and Oil (I’ve done some illustrations of her if you scroll down my instagram). ———————————-??‍♀️ I love Godly personifications of abstract/ horrific concepts (For example, Mars as the Roman God of War) — so I wanted to update the list to include our modern issues. ———————————-?? Each song will be a different embodiment of human extinction as depicted through a Pop star Demonology. The first song ‘we appreciate power’, introduced the pro-AI-propaganda girl group who embody our potential enslavement/destruction at the hands of Artificial General intelligence. ———————————-?? It’s possible I will drop an EP or a few more singles of synth-based stuff b4 the album because its mostly ethereal nu metal (ish), and I know a lot of ppl miss the synths and whatnot. ———————————- ??Climate change is something I’m only ever confronted with in a sad/ guilty way…. Reading news and what not… so my goal is to make climate change fun (lol..??)…. uhhh… (I mean, everybody loves a good villain… re: the joker, Queen Beryl).. so maybe it’ll be a bit easier to look at if it can exist as a character and not just abstract doom. ———————————-☢️☣️ More musique soon! <3
