Grimes Unveils ‘Flesh Without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream’ Video
Three years after the release of her stellar third album Visions, alt-pop artist Grimes has finally unveiled new music, set to be part of her upcoming album Art Angels.
Grimes, who is currently on her Rhinestone Cowgirls Tour, premiered the biting, guitar-driven “Flesh without Blood” during an interview with BBC Radio 1 earlier today (October 26), and the music video for the track was posted on her Vevo channel hours later.
The bloody video -- which actually spans two songs, “Flesh without Blood” and “Life in the Vivid Dream” — sees Grimes dressed up in both an elaborate, Victorian-era costume and as an angel, complete with wings. According to the video's end credits, Grimes directed, edited, colored and art-directed the video herself.
Speaking about her upcoming album Art Angels (which is due out on November 6) Grimes told Fader that fans will notice a significant tonal change in the music, especially compared with her last album Visions. She said, "They’re not all diss tracks, but there’s a lot of diss tracks. I think all my other albums were, like, sad. And this time it’s more happy and angry. I live in my own house that I pay for. I bought all this equipment myself. I control my own life now. No one has any say over what I do or where I go or when I do it.”
