It’s been a hot minute since we’ve had new music from Grimes. With her recent relationship with Elon Musk, she been in the media a lot, just not for new tunes. Well, we’re pleased to announce that today, that changes.
Posting to her Instagram, the global weirdo has announced her first album since the release of Art Angels in late 2015. Titled Miss_Anthropocene, Grimes describes the album as “a concept album about the anthropomorphic Goddess of Climate Change” (whatever that means).
We haven’t heard a lot of music news from Grimes lately, but she’s finally announced her new album Miss_Anthropocene, and if the lead single is anything to go off, it should be a good one.
The first track off the album, We Appreciate Power dropped late last year, and offers our first look at what this new sound is like. And the video is a perfect demonstration of Grime’s weird and wonderful visual style.
While there’s no official release date for the new album as of yet, she does mention that she may drop some singles or an EP before the release. She says that they’ll be “synth-based stuff… because [the album] mostly ethereal nu metal (ish), and I know a lot of ppl miss the synths and whatnot.”
Until then though, we’ll just have to keep an eye on her social channels for any new drops. You can catch the full post and announcement below:

New Album: Grimes – Miss_Anthrop0cene 1. mis·an·thrope noun: a person who dislikes humankind and avoids human society. 2. Anthropocene: The Anthropocene is a proposed epoch dating from the commencement of significant human impact on the Earth’s Geology and ecosystems including, but not limited to, anthropogenic climate change. ———————————— Just fount out my first interview in a few years is coming out tomorrow. 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
