Grimes has released a self-directed music video for a previously unheard demo “REALiTi”, which is taken from a scrapped follow up to her Visions LP, and she claims the song is “poorly recorded” but it bounces with a gorgeous flow and quality that’s hard to question. The video was recorded during Grimes 2013 Asia tour and features a mixture of live footage and shots across Asian landmarks. Grimes is currently working on her fourth album and has said she is recording with guitars for the first time. Watch the “REALiTi” video below.
Adding a personal note in the video’s description, Grimes wrote, “since this is no longer gonna be on the album, I’m releasing it as a special thank you to everyone in Singapore, KL, Manila, Jakarta, HK, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei, Seoul, Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo who came out to the shows! It was an honour to play with a bunch of amazing bands and travel to places I would never otherwise be able to go. This song was never finished. its a demo from ~ the lost album ~, recorded early 2013. i lost the ableton file, so its not mixed or mastered. i tried to doctor the mp3 into a listenable state, but it was poorly recorded in the first place and never meant to be heard by anyone, so its a bit of a mess haha”.
