More new music from Grimes seems to arrive every couple days or so. On Friday, Grimes will release her new album, Art Angels, via digital platforms. She’s already shared some music from the album, including “SCREAM” and “Flesh Without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream.” Today, she’s offered up yet another new track for us to hear, “laughing and not being normal,” which is the leadoff track from the album. It’s not a pop song per se, but the instrumental intro to the album. But whatever, new Grimes is new Grimes. Listen here.
Art Angels follows Grimes’ 2012 album Visions.
